New Yorkers living with debilitating medical conditions marched Sunday in support of legalizing a form of medical marijuana.

As state law-makers debate the future of medical marijuana, patients and families say they're still suffering. Rose Homuth has two sons,  Ricky and Brady have both been suffering from seizures for more than 20 years.

She says prescription drugs don't work that's why she wants to treat her sons with medical marijuana.

“I think it's going to be a miracle for our boys. We've tried everything and if this medical marijuana passes, I think it'll be a good thing, not just for my children, but other children and people with Multiple Sclerosis. There's so many disease out there this could really help.”

Kathy Annable's daughter Kaylie has a rare neurological disorder that also causes daily seizures. Annable says studies have shown a component in medical marijuana called CBD can help curb or even stop seizures. Other advocates tell us they are already using marijuana illegally to fight their illnesses and it's working. Still, as of now, they're breaking the law.
