Medical Marijuana Program in New York

Both recreational and medical cannabis is legal in the Empire State.  To get a better understanding of the status of marijuana laws in the state, let’s take a look at the legislative history of cannabis in NY:

  • 2014 — Medical marijuana was legalized in New York under New York’s Compassionate Care Act, or S7923, permitting the possession, use, manufacture, delivery, transport, and administration of medical marijuana by patients and designated caregivers.
  • July 29, 2019 — Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the decriminalization bill into law which went into effect a month later.
  • March 31, 2021 — The state passes SB 854-A, the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act legalizing the purchase, possession, and transport of up to 3 ounces (85 grams) of weed and up to 24 grams of concentrate for adults 21 and older.

The Compassionate Care Act of 2014 will be repealed as a Public Health Law.  Article 3 of the new Cannabis Law will govern the medical use of cannabis.

The Office of Cannabis Management was established to oversee all related matters to marijuana — medical, recreational, and hemp.  The OCM will now oversee the State’s existing Medical Marijuana Program, currently regulated by the Department of Health.

For other provisions under the MRTA, check the statement from the Office of Cannabis Management in New York.
