Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana Use in NY

Until very recently, the state of New York was known for having one of the strictest programs for medical marijuana in the United States. While the program in itself wasn’t much different than what we had in other states, the process of getting a medical marijuana card was expensive, time-consuming, and burdensome for all patients within the state.

Qualifying Conditions for a Medical Marijuana Card

The New York State Medical Marijuana Program is quite clear on the conditions for medical marijuana use in the state. The Assembly Bill 6357 clearly states that all patients diagnosed with any of the following life threatening medical conditions will QUALIFY for a medical marijuana card for using the drug:

· Cancer

· HIV/AIDS

· ALS

· Parkinson’s Disease

· Neuropathy

· Multiple Sclerosis

· Spasticity

· Epilepsy

· Huntington’s Disease

· Inflammatory Bowel Disease

· Opioid Replacement/Opioid Use Disorder

Complicated by:

· Cachexia

· Severe Nausea

· Seizures

· Severe chronic pain

· Severe or persistent muscle spasms

Lastly, your medical marijuana practitioner can also recommend the drug to you as a pain relieving substitute to opioid usage. The ongoing opioid addiction epidemic is a growing cause of concern within the state, which is why medical marijuana has been approved as an alternative to the opioid pills.
