NEW YORK MEDICAL MARIJUANA
If you want to legally purchase pot from state-approved medical marijuana dispensaries, first you will need to legally acquire a doctor’s recommendation.
Colloquially, medical marijuana cards are referred to as many names: recommendations, “rec” cards, “med” cards, and more. Simply put, the doctor is recommending your use for medical marijuana, and validating it in the form of a state-approved license.
So, what are some conditions that qualify you to get licensed access? If you’ve been following medical marijuana legislation news in New York, you would know that Chronic Pain was recently deemed a legal medical condition that qualifies for marijuana treatment. Well, I don’t know about you, but I absolutely have nagging chronic pains from years of hard work.
NUGGMD AND TELEMEDICINE IN NEW YORK
I personally am not a big fan of the doctor’s office. Scheduling an appointment is almost meaningless, considering you inevitably still need to wait in the lobby with all the other sick people.
Also, not just any doctor can approve you for cannabis treatment in the State of New York; only about 800 have been given the power. By getting licensed as a patient online, you can forget about all the time and energy wasted on a maintaining an in-person appointment.
You have the right to use a Telemedicine Evaluation to obtain your medical marijuana certification online, from a licensed doctor—this is made possible by Senate Bill 2405, passed in the State of New York in March of 2015.
