Only state residents can attain medical marijuana in New York. You can’t use out-of-state medical marijuana cards, and New York doesn’t allow recreational marijuana. Simply put, tourists or visitors can’t see a doctor for MMJ-related purposes.

  • Have any other condition causing pain that interferes with your everyday life. You must have documentation that proves you’ve tried other medical options and that you’ve had the condition for at least three months.

Once you determine if you qualify, you will need to get a note from your doctor that confirms your eligibility. They must be registered with the state for this note of eligibility to be viable.
