Medical Marijuana Doctors in New York, NY

To keep the residents of New York safe, medical marijuana is strictly regulated by the state. Although it is now legal for suffering patients, these individuals need to prove that they have a qualifying condition. This can be done by visiting a state-approved medical practitioner. This is the first, and most important step, in getting your medical marijuana card.

Does My Condition Qualify Me for a Medical Marijuana Card?

The Compassionate Care Act of 2014 designates which conditions qualify for medical marijuana use. These include diseases like:

  • HIV and AIDs
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Cancer
  • Huntington’s disease

Be sure to research ahead of time before making a medical appointment to ensure your condition meets the criteria. If you struggle with chronic pain or other severe symptoms, you could also qualify.

What to Expect at Your Medical Appointment

Before making an appointment with a physician, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Ensure the doctor is registered with the state to certify medical marijuana use
  • Bring proof of New York state residency, including a legal ID
  • Make sure all your medical records are sent ahead of time, including anything that tracks the progression of your condition

Once your medical condition is verified, they’ll certify you online with the DOH and provide you with proof of certification. You can then apply for your medical marijuana card on the Department of Health’s website.
