New York Medical Marijuana Law

(S7923/A6357-E)

New York legalized medical marijuana in 2014 when Governor Cuomo signed the Compassionate Care Act. Under New York’s new medical marijuana law, a patient who has been certified by a healthcare provider to use medical marijuana will register with the New York State Department of Health and receive a patient identification card. Specially approved organizations — such as hospitals or community health centers — will dispense the medical marijuana to registered patients, under Department of Health supervision.

 

Cannabis is a state-legal alternative to prescription medication. Licensed physicians are permitted to evaluate and recommend Medical Marijuana, also known as MMJ, to qualifying patients suffering from one of the following severe, debilitating or life-threatening conditions:

  • Cancer

  • Epilepsy

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

  • Neuropathy

  • Chronic Pain

  • Opiod Dependency

  • PTSD

  • ALS

  • HIV or AIDS

  • Parkinson's Disease

  • Huntington's Disease

  • Severe damage to the nervous tissue of the spinal cord with objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity.

 

*Please note that at this time, in NYS, medical marijuana is not covered under any health insurance, workers compensation, or no fault.
