The Breakdown:

The Changes:


Many different changes are being made to NY's medical marijuana program including:

  • The new laws will allow for home delivery of medical marijuana for the patients that are too sick or unable to travel. This greatly increases patient accessibility, which has been an issue with NY's current program. 

  • The new laws will allow for nurse practitioners to certify patients as being qualified for medical marijuana treatments. This also greatly increases patient accessibility to medical marijuana in NY.

  • The number of companies allowed to open dispensaries which is currently limited to 5, will be expanded to 10. Each permitted company is allowed to open multiple dispensaries, however some believed this was too limited with only 5 companies.

  • The new laws may allow for an expanded condition list that would qualify a patient for NY's medical marijuana program. Currently patients qualify with cancer, epilepsy, AIDS, and more however this list may be expanded to included PTSD and Alzheimer’s.  

People Want Flowers & Herbs:


New York's medical marijuana program does not allow for smoked herb products. Therefore it is currently limited to tinctures and other concentrates. Many patients want the herb for vaporization and smoking, however they will have to wait as this is not part of the law changes.  




These changes to New York's medical marijuana laws will be a positive change to the industry, and will help it grow faster with more companies, more medical professionals, and more patients simultaneously.
