NY To Allow Medical Marijuana in Hospitals

The New York state health department has announced that starting this February, hospitals may allow their patients to use medical marijuana. 

In addition, as part of its efforts to expand New York’s medical marijuana regime, the state is now permitting wholesale retail, unlimited brands at dispensaries, and the use of medical marijuana for chronic pain.

Nevertheless, the state has much work ahead of it, as it has only certified 750 physicians and almost 11,000 medical marijuana patients to date, despite the millions of New Yorkers who could benefit from greater medical autonomy.
