To qualify for medical marijuana in New York, you must have one of the medical conditions deemed legally treatable by cannabis under state law. These include conditions that cause chronic spasms, seizures, or pain and are not easily treated by traditional means. Specific conditions include ALS, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, spinal cord injuries, AIDS, and Parkinson’s. Other similar conditions may also qualify. If you believe your condition qualifies, you must schedule an appointment with an in-person or online medical marijuana doctor who can verify what you suffer from, your past attempts at treatment, and how your symptoms affect your life. If the doctor believes you would benefit from medical marijuana treatment, he or she will issue a recommendation. This is needed to apply for a registration card with the New York Department of Health. You can apply for an online medical marijuana card if your appointment was with an online mmj doctor.
