Medical marijuana is legal in New York State but it's too expensive for many people who need it. Some lawmakers are working to fix that.
A bill has just been introduced in the Assembly that would require state public health plans, like Medicaid and Child Health Plus, to cover the drug.
Right now, most insurers won't cover medical marijuana. That's because of its status as a Schedule 1 drug.
Lawmakers say the bill is needed to boost access to medical marijuana.
