In New York, patients may have up to a 30-day supply to be determined by the health commissioner during the rule making process or by the physician. Approved Conditions include Cancer, HIV/AIDS, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage causing spasticity, epilepsy, inflammatory bowel disease, neuropathies, or Huntington’s disease. Smoking is not a method approved by the bill.
On August 1st, 2017 five additional licenses were given, bringing the total licenses up to 10 and allowing up to 40 dispensaries state-wide. To mark Veterans Day, in November 2017, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an MPP Foundation-backed bill to add post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a qualifying condition, making New York the 28th of the 29 medical marijuana states to allow PTSD patients to qualify. In addition, the Department of Health added chronic pain to the list of qualifying conditions in 2017.
In July 2018, New York State Department of Health announced the implementation of an emergency rule allowing for cannabis to be used as a substitute for treating conditions that an opioid medication may otherwise be prescribed for.
In August 2018, Gov. Cuomo’s office took the first steps towards facilitating major marijuana reform, appointing a 20-person workgroup to draft legislation for an adult-use market. However, we still await New York to produce any bill to legalize cannabis recreationally, some think this may happen in 2020.
