A deal to legalize medical marijuana appears to be in the works.

Senator Diane Savino says negotiations are underway between the governor's office and the assembly.

This comes as Governor Andrew Cuomo says he's open to the so-called, Compassionate Care Act, but has reservations about the drug being exploited.

Savino says she hopes an agreement will be reached by Monday.
