Connections: Medical Marijuana, The Medley Centre, and the Global Economy

We tackle three hot topics. The first is the state of medical marijuana. We'll explain why the Compassionate Care Act, which would give doctors the authority to prescribe marijuana, has stalled. We'll look at its chances of revival with less than a week to go in the session in Albany with Holly Anderson of the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester.

Then, we talk to JoeMorelle, assembly majority leader, about why he pushed to strip Medley Centre owner Scott Congel of his coveted tax benefits.

We conclude with a discussion on the global economy with Dr. Jay Bryson, global economist for Wells Fargo.
