Patients can now apply online to register for the Medical Marijuana Program.

Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with a specific severe, debilitating or life-threatening condition that may be treated with medical marijuana?

New Yorkers who would like to buy marijuana for medical purposes from one of the state's five newly-licensed producers in 2016 can now apply online to the state's Medical Marijuana Patient Certification and Registration System.

Patients must first be certified by their physician, who must be registered with the Department.  There is a $50 application fee billed to the patient at a later date, unless a waiver for financial hardship has been obtained.
