The State of New York did legalize medical marijuana in 2014 with the passing of Assembly Bill 6357. Under the law, registered patients with a qualifying condition will have access to non-smokable marijuana. The state has yet to provide specific regulations on how much marijuana patients will be able to possess at a time, simply providing a guideline of a “30-day supply” thus far. The state has a deadline of early 2016 to provide full guidelines.

In New York, the following conditions are approved for medical marijuana access:

• Cancer
• HIV / AIDS
• Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gherig’sDisease)
• Parkinson’s Disease
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Spinal Cord Damage Causing Spasticity
• Epilepsy
• Inflammatory Bowel Disease
• Neuropathies
• Huntington’s Disease

The Department of Health commissioner is charged with to adding or removing qualifying conditions. The following conditions are also under consideration:

• Alzheimer’s Disease
• Dystonia
• Muscular Dystrophy
• Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
• Rheumatoid Arthritis

This medical marijuana policy has come under scrutiny for a few reasons, including the exclusion of certain conditions from qualifying, the exclusion of smokable marijuana, and the small number of producers and dispensaries that will be opened.
