You may be eligible for the use of medical cannabis if deemed clinically appropriate by your certifying health care provider. Please schedule an appointment to find out if you qualify for a medical marijuana card!

The first step is speaking with your treating practitioner about whether the medical use of marijuana is appropriate for your condition. If your practitioner determines it is an appropriate treatment for you and he or she is registered with the New York State Department of Health’s Medical Marijuana Program, he or she may issue you a certification for medical marijuana.

The Commissioner must approve any form of medical marijuana. Approved forms include, but are not limited to: solid or semi-solid dosage forms (such as capsules, tablets, and lozenges), metered liquid or oil preparations (for vaporization or oral administration), metered ground plant preparations, and topicals and transdermal patches. Under the law, smoking is not permitted and the regulations prohibit edibles. Please contact the registered organization directly to find out more about the products they have available.
The patient’s certifying practitioner must include the following information on the patient’s certification: the authorized brand and form of the approved medical marijuana, the administration method, and any limitations on the use of approved medical marijuana product. If a practitioner has a recommendation regarding dosage, it should also be included on the certification, although a recommendation on dosage is not required. Moreover, the total amount of product that may be dispensed may not exceed a thirty-day supply.

Once you possess a certification from a registered practitioner, you must register with the Medical Marijuana program through the Department’s online Patient Registration System. You can find detailed instructions on the registration process, including how to register on behalf of a minor or an individual who is otherwise incapable of consenting to medical treatment, by visiting: Information for Patients
After your registration is approved, you will be issued a Temporary Registry Identification Card, which may be used in conjunction with a government issued photo identification card until you receive your registry identification card in the mail. Dispensing facility locations can be found by clicking here: Registered Organizations

There is a non-refundable application fee of fifty dollars ($50) that the Department is currently waiving for all patients and their designated caregivers.

New York Medical Marijuana Card Legislation

Medical Marijuana was legalized in New York in 2014 with the Compassionate Care Act, or S7923 which allowed the possession, use, manufacture, delivery, transport, and administration of medical marijuana by patients and designated caregivers.

In March 2021, New York passed the Marihuana Regulation and Taxation Act which legalized purchasing, possessing, and transporting up to 3 ounces of marijuana and up to 24 grams of concentrate for adults 21 and older while also creating the Office of Marijuana Management to oversee medical, recreational, and hemp within the state.
