Marijuana to be used in the New York State for medical purposes under special conditions


New York requires also a four-hour mandatory training course for physicians before they can certify patients and for pharmacists before they can dispense the drug. At the Columbia Care medical marijuana dispensary in downtown Manhattan, patients must pass through multiple layers of security just to get in the door. Every patient is assigned a specially trained pharmacist, who dispenses from a supply of marijuana extract capsules, oils and tinctures that is locked out of sight in an underground vault. Some critics said that New York has gone too far in limiting the types of patients allowed in the program and how those who qualify can use the drug.
