LIU-Brooklyn hosts marijuana legalization input session

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

It was Brooklyn residents' turn to talk about marijuana legalization as part of sessions set up by the state to gather input on the topic.

Over 100 people turned out to the input session, several of whom gave their opinion to the room.

There are 15 sessions set up, but Tuesday's at LIU-Brooklyn is the only in the borough.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has already made steps toward the legalization and regulation of marijuana, but now it is up to the matter of how to carry that out.

The next session will be held in Staten Island Wednesday, and another on Long Island Thursday.
