MASSACHUSETTS: It has been nearly a year since voters in Massachusetts passed a ballot measure allowing medical use of marijuana.
The program is facing some new criticism before it’s even able to get access.

What is his number one concern?
He said the main concern is whether or not it will be a doctor-patient relationship that it held up to the same standards.
He said that big diseases, such as cancer, should be the ones that doctors prescribe medical marijuana for, and that those types of illnesses warrant many checkups.
