On October 21, 2021, the Cannabis Control Board advanced regulations for public comment that will allow for the home cultivation of cannabis for certified medical patients. The regulations follow the requirements of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) which continues to expand patient access to medical marijuana. The proposed regulations will be subject to a 60-day public comment period when filed in the New York State Register. Certified patients and designated caregivers are not allowed to legally cultivate medical cannabis at home until the regulations have been formally adopted . Please continue to monitor this website for notice of adoption of the home cultivation regulations. Click here to read the proposed regulations.

Guidance on Use of Vaping Products for Medical Marijuana Patients.

The NYS Department of Health urges all New Yorkers to stop using vape products until the definitive cause of reported vaping-associated serious pulmonary (lung) illnesses nationwide can be better determined. Since the investigation into the illnesses began, there have been no reports of adverse events associated with approved products in the NYS Medical Marijuana Program related to the outbreak. Medical marijuana products are approved by the Department and rigorously tested for contaminants, pesticides and concentration of cannabinoids, including, but not limited to Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). However, out of an abundance of caution, we are also urging patients in the medical marijuana program to consult with their health care providers on potential alternatives to vaping products while the investigation continues.

Medical marijuana products are not a covered benefit under New York State Medicaid. However, practitioner office visits related to patient evaluation and certification for medical marijuana are Medicaid reimbursable services. Practitioners who participate with Medicaid are prohibited from requesting payment for medical marijuana certification from the member, regardless of whether the certification is provided during the initial office visit or subsequent to the initial visit. Patients insured with Medicaid who use out-of-network or non-Medicaid providers for evaluation and certification may still be charged a fee for the evaluation and certification visit. To avoid confusion, patients are advised to verify that their evaluating and certifying practitioner participates with Medicaid prior to their appointment.
