    In the episode: "News On Cannabis with Dr. Lynn Parodneck: NYS Regulations, Dispensaries, Licenses and Medical Cards", which was recorded on September 9th 2021, Dr. Lynn offers information on New York State regulations for all things cannabis-related from licensing  recreational dispensaries to how the medical dispensary expansions are moving forward. Lynn also goes over how to get a doctor to write you a script, and why there is such a delay in support from Western medicine. As the new industry is developing, some goals for urban areas of New York include consumption lounges for the public. Lynn's anecdotes on successful patients run the full spectrum, and her ongoing commitment to her clients is remarkable.
