In 2014, Gov. Andrew Cuomo passed a bill legalizing medicinal marijuana in New York. Despite this huge milestone, he didn’t stop there. Governor Cuomo tried to legalize recreational weed, including convening a Pot Summit (Governors’ Regional Cannabis & Vaping Summit in his Manhattan office) with his East Coast counterparts in 2019.
However, this newfound freedom did not come ungoverned. For instance, in order to qualify for treatment using medicinal marijuana, a patient’s condition must fall within the state-approved illnesses and be confirmed by a physician. Which means that cannabis use must be verified by a State-registered healthcare provider as clinically acceptable treatment. A patient is also required to register with the state to be allowed to purchase medical cannabis legally.
Additionally, the legislation made medicinal marijuana accessible, permitted up to five caregivers per patient, increased the maximum validity period of a prescription to 60 days (up from 30), and made it legal to buy smokable cannabis from dispensaries that sell it.
As of 5th October 2022, registered patients or their authorized caregivers aged 21 and over were legally allowed to grow medicinal weed at their residences. This law, however, restricted the number of plants to only six and within enclosed facilities, whether indoors or outdoors. Patients may possess a total of up to five pounds of cannabis from their harvest.
