The patient must sign up for an account at my.ny.gov. When creating a new account select ‘Medical marijuana data management system’.

NY Medical Marijuana Laws

The New York medical marijuana program was initiated in 2014 when Governor Cuomo gave patients and caregivers legal protection under the Compassionate Care Act.

We know that when it comes to medical marijuana, state law and federal law can become a little confusing. What is important to remember, is that despite the New York regulations, Marijuana is still classified as a Schedule I drug by the federal government. Because of this, doctors cannot prescribe medical marijuana to their patients in the traditional way.

As a result, patients can’t go to a regular pharmacy to get their prescribed medical marijuana. Instead, since the Compassionate Care Act was signed, registered patients have been able to access medical marijuana at registered organizations, more commonly known as dispensaries. These organizations have been regulated and licensed by the New York state to cultivate cannabis in order to provide medical marijuana to patients.

In addition, all patient must follow the state guidelines for possession, use and cultivation.

You can read more about marijuana legalization at New York’s medical marijuana laws, or Assembly Bill 6357 (PDF).

How to get Medical Marijuana in New York

Remember, you will need to have your medical marijuana card in order to buy products from dispensaries. If you don’t have one yet, you will need to first get a certification from a NY licensed medical marijuana doctor.

Then you can apply for registry ID (Medical Marijuana card) with the NY Department of Health. Once you have a Medical Marijuana ID Card, you will be able to buy medical marijuana products from a certified dispensary.

Only patients with a valid New York Medical Marijuana Card from the Department of Health may have access to dispensaries. Once you have obtained your med card, you may purchase medical marijuana from a dispensary.

For more information about the New York Medical Marijuana Program, see the New York Department of Health.

New York Caregiver information

Some patients are unable to visit a dispensary in person to purchase their medical marijuana. Should that be the case, you may want to designate one or two caregivers to assist you. The caregiver(s) will make sure you are able to obtain and correctly use the prescribed marijuana. If you wish to designate a caregiver, you must do so when you apply for your medical marijuana card. However, there are some specific requirements that a person must meet before they can become a caregiver.

  • The person must be 21 years of age
  • They must have a valid state-issued ID to prove NY residency.
  • Your medical marijuana doctor cannot be your designated caregiver.

When the New York Department of Health approves the patient’s application, their caregiver(s) must register with as well. Caregiver(s) will receive a registry ID so that they may visit a dispensary on behalf of their patient. You can find instructions for Caregiver Registration here.

How to renew your Medical Marijuana card.

Patients

Please note – Your medical marijuana recommendation is only valid for 1 year. After that time, you will need to be re-evaluated by one of our licensed medical marijuana doctors. However, you don’t have to worry your license expiring. When it’s time to renew your license, we will reach out and remind you to schedule your next appointment.

Caregivers

Important – If you are a caregiver, your Registry ID is only valid for the same period as your patient’s medical marijuana card. When your patient’s card expires, they will need to get a new certification from their doctor. After your patient has successfully renewed their med card, you will need to renew your registry card as well. You need to make sure that you have a valid Registry ID card when buying from a dispensary.
