THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

A Canadian farming company is teaming with Akwesasne, Ont.-based consultants to possibly grow medical marijuana in Bombay. New York in 18 months will allow medical marijuana on a very tight basis under the Compassionate Care Act. They will license five growers that can each operate four dispensaries. Growing must be done indoors in a secured facility.

Would you support a medical marijuana plant coming to St. Lawrence County?

Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, Dec 1.

LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:

St. Lawrence County has a rate of approximately 88 cases of lung cancer per 100,000 people. The average across the state is about 64 cases per 100,000 people, the report shows.

Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with lung cancer?
