MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN THE BIG APPLE
For each of the 33 states that have legalized medical marijuana, there are different rules and regulations that patients have to follow. While some states, such as California, have earned a reputation for relatively easy standards when it comes to obtaining a medical cannabis card, others are more difficult. New York, in particular, has a process that is expensive, time-consuming, and deliberately filled with red tape. The qualifying conditions for the medical marijuana program in New York are generally much more severe than those in other states. This includes conditions like HIV or AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Parkinson's disease. A full list of these conditions can be found at my.ny.gov website . Unfortunately, New York does not consider more common medical issues such as anxiety, insomnia, or lower back pain to be relevant for cannabis treatment. Although change is slow, attitudes surrounding medical cannabis in New York have evolved and will continue to change in the years to come.
