If you are suffering from one of these conditions, you may be a candidate for a New York State medical marijuana card. This is a type of identification that allows patients to purchase medical marijuana from dispensaries for the purpose of treating their health symptoms. Marijuana cards are issued by the state of New York and follow the policies of the state’s cannabis laws. In order to obtain a medical marijuana card you must first be certified by a licensed clinician like our own Dr. Nerfis Elminowski, DNP-BC  and the payment of a one-time annual fee. Holding a medical marijuana card will enable you to choose and purchase from a variety of medical cannabis products.
