NY State Medical Marijuana Program to include Chronic Pain Diagnosis

“After conducting a thorough review of the scientific literature, it became clear that there may be certain benefits in the use of medical marijuana by patients suffering from chronic pain,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Howard A. Zucker. “Medical marijuana is already helping thousands of patients across New York State, and adding chronic pain as a qualifying condition will help more patients and further strengthen the program.”

Starting early in 2017, Chronic Pain will be one of the qualifying diagnosis for the Medical Marijuana Program. This is an exciting new development which will greatly increase access for our patients. Please ask our doctors here whether you qualify for this new treatment option.
