Town Hall: Update on New York's medical marijuana program
Maria Caserta with Dent Neurologic Institute in Amherst joined our Town Hall to talk about the medical marijuana program there.
A new Medical Cannabis Program certification and registration system went into effect on Monday across the state.
This expands the eligibility criteria for patients who can benefit from medical cannabis and makes it easier for them to be certified by a medical practitioner.
Last year’s marijuana regulation and taxation act ensured that this new system will be run by the office of cannabis management instead of the health department.
