Residents of Rye, New York who are interested in becoming medical marijuana patients may benefit from New York state laws that allow certain individuals with chronic health conditions to qualify for the legal purchase and use of cannabis. Here is what you need to know to qualify.  

How to Qualify for Medical Marijuana in Rye

To purchase medical marijuana in the state of New York, you must be in possession of a registration card from the New York Department of Health. To apply for one of these cards, you must first have a recommendation from a licensed medical marijuana doctor. You can schedule an appointment with an mmj doctor in person or online. During your appointment, the doctor will find out more about your medical conditions, symptoms, and what you have done to treat your condition in the past. Medical conditions that qualify for cannabis treatment include cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Other conditions that cause chronic spasms, seizures, or pain may also qualify. If the doctor believes you would benefit from medical marijuana use, he or she will issue you the recommendation and you can apply for your registration card.

If your application is approved, you will receive your registration card in the mail within seven business days.
