3 Steps closer to obtaining a medical marijuana card in New York
Prior to meeting with a practitioner, patients must be screened for qualification (Step 1) in accordance with the rules of the Compassionate Care Act.

During the evaluation your practitioner will conduct a discussion of your reasons for wanting to medicate with cannabis and a review of your medical history. This typically takes 20 - 30 minutes. If your physician decides medical cannabis will help your condition, s/he will discuss risks and benefits as well as provide guidance regarding which products and doses will be most beneficial to your particular condition(s), symptom(s) and lifestyle, plus information regarding the available dispensaries. At this point you will receive a signed certification. With this certification you can go online and obtain your Medical Marijuana Card.
