“Dr. Weedy” will definitely become your irreplaceable online partner.
The program has emerged back in 2014 when the New York governor Cuomo has signed the Compassionate Care Act (S7923) that allowed patients to buy medical marijuana in certified dispensaries by receiving a special ID card. According to the New York state medical marijuana program, users of medical marijuana are allowed to consume it in a form of chewable, edibles, tablets, topical lotions, patches and ointments. Capsules, oils, and inhaling or vaporizing are permitted as well. Recently, the New York governor Andrew Cuomo along with the health state commissioner have warned residents of the state to avoid vaping during their press conference. It’s related to the fact of increased issues of lung problems in other US states. Many of these issues were related to the usage of THC vape cartridges and e-cigarettes that have emerged on the black market. The results of various surveys have shown that 10 out of 18 black-market cartridges contained an overwhelmingly high dosage of E-vitamin acetate that is extremely toxic while being inhaled and leads to serious lung problems and organs injuries. Also, it is important to mention that the usage of recreational marijuana is prohibited in the New York state. However, if you’re a consumer of medical marijuana and searching for ways of receiving a medical marijuana card there are ways of doing it legally and Dr.Weedy will make it for you. Instead of endangering your own health with vaping, medical marijuana will be an indisputable helper in various diagnoses and conditions (listed at the “qualifying conditions” section).
Being an approved patient of the medical marijuana card program it is important to get acquainted with some possible restrictions in order to avoid some negative consequences:
1. Being a marijuana consumer in New York doesn’t allow you to grow your own marijuana. There is a possibility to purchase it in special dispensaries with permission.
2. Another important thing is that you’re not allowed to drive the vehicle after consuming marijuana because it might lead you directly to jail. It might be fully compatible with driving after alcohol consumption. You should always keep in mind that the consuming of marijuana is still illegal on the federal level that might cause some troubles.
3. Consuming marijuana in public places is also dangerous for your freedom so it’s better to use it in private.
4. Having purchased medical marijuana doesn’t allow you to resell it to your mates or close friends and family members. Only certified dispensaries have a right to do so.
5. It is also prohibited to carry it with you or smoke in school, near school bus stations, workplaces, etc. The same rules are also applicable to foods and products containing marijuana. Frankly speaking, the list of restrictions is pretty extensive. However, it is always better to get acquainted with all the aspects in order to prevent negative consequences and problems with federal and state laws.

Further, you’ll see a list of available dispensaries that will give you a chance to purchase medical marijuana legally. State-licensed dispensaries open its doors for all officially registered residents of New York State and those who participate in the MMJ card program by possessing a special card that is widely accepted by other dispensaries within the US and New York State.

Along with the legalization of marijuana in different states within the US, many people started to use medical marijuana in the treatment of serious and chronic diseases. However, still, there is not enough information about the influence of MMJ on the older group of patients.
New York is not an exclusion to this global trend of medical marijuana usage. Honestly, until quite recently the rules of receiving medical marijuana in New York state were very inconvenient for residents even though there weren’t any special laws on MMJ. The process of receiving a medical marijuana card was extremely exhausting, what’s more, exhausting for their pockets and time.

A caregiver is a person that is legally allowed to purchase medical marihuana with someone’s (in our case-patients) permission. Usually, the number of allowed caregivers is two persons. Also, at the same time, one caregiver is allowed to provide up to five patients.
In order to become a caregiver, one should be at least 21 years old. However, in case you’re under 21, you can email the Health Department via this email email@example.com with a detailed description of your relations with the patient and the reason for being allowed to act as a caregiver. You need to be a resident of New York. You need to possess an identification card or driving license of the New York state with a current address. Also, you need to successfully go through the verification of your criminal background without any notes of being suspected in drug, narcotics and other controlled substance dealings, selling in recent five years. Along with that, you need to get registered and possess an ID card that will give you a chance to purchase medical marijuana from licensed dispensaries. After passing all these steps you need to get registered as a caregiver for your patient. To successfully complete the registration process you’ll need to have the exact name of your patient as it is registered in the Patient and Caregiver Registry, the identification number of the patient and his date of birth. Right after this, you can go to the Patient and Caregiver Registry and select the “Caregiver” section and click on the “Adult Patient Caregiver Registration” button in case it’s an adult patient that already has or going to have an identification card of the patient and can visit the dispensary. If the patient is already registered and has some disabilities that need assistance you need to visit the “Caregivers” section and click on the “Caregiver registering for the existing patients” button. Right after this you can fill in all the necessary information and click the submit button. You should keep in mind that the Patient and Caregiver aren’t allowed to have the same e-mail. At last, when all the information is submitted you need to wait for 4 to 6 weeks until your application will be approved. When the approving e-mail is received you can get back to the Patient and Caregiver Registry section and pay a fee for issuing a card. In case you’re going to register as a caregiver for a new patient the same procedure is applicable for creating an account for new patients. Except pressing the “Existing Patient” choose the “New Patient” section.
Officially, the MMJ program card is available for one year. However, after the expiration of your card, you can submit your application for issuing a new one. Mainly, the steps are the same as for creating a new medical marijuana program card. You’ll have to re-submit your application and pay a 50$ application fee (probably, along with other included fees for receiving new recommendations from certified physicians).
