On this week's edition of New York NOW: We have an in-depth look at New York's new marijuana legalization law, including what has to happen for retail sales to start, how it changes the state's medical program, and why some already want changes.

Then, Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes led negotiations on legalization. She joins us to discuss the new law, if she's happy with how it turned out, and what's ahead for the conversation on marijuana in New York.

And later, we'll have the latest on the state budget, and an update on Gov. Andrew Cuomo's evolving controversies with Karen DeWitt from New York State Public Radio and Jon Campbell from the USA Today Network.
