Once your application is submitted and approved, you’ll be able to download your medical card and begin making purchases at the dispensary.

The first step is to determine whether you meet the residency
criteria for the program. In order to participate in New York’s medical
marijuana program, you must be able to demonstrate current residency in
New York State. You’ll need to provide one of the following proofs of

Temporary residents who are receiving treatment in New York for a
qualifying medical condition may demonstrate residency by providing a
lease, utility bill, hospital bill, or other documentation as approved
by the Department of Health.

Each patient may appoint up to two
caregivers during the application process. A caregiver is a trusted
individual you select who will be permitted to make dispensary purchases
on your behalf if you are unable to visit in person. Once your
application is approved, your caregiver(s) will need to register through
the online system.


Please note that in order to approve you, the doctor or nurse must be
licensed in New York and registered with the medical marijuana program.
If your doctor or nurse hasn’t yet registered with the program, they
must follow these instructions in
order to sign up. If your care provider is unwilling or unable to issue
a patient certification for you, they may refer you to a practitioner
who is registered with the program. Your provider can access a list of
participating physicians and nurses by clicking here
and following the instructions in the “Physician Access to Registered
Practitioners” section. Referrals are only available from your doctor
and cannot be provided by the dispensary.

If you can prove NY residency and you have a qualifying medical
condition, the next step is to obtain a patient certification from a
participating physician, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner.
When discussing medical marijuana with your care provider, it’s
important to be honest about your health situation and explain why you
believe medical marijuana treatment will be beneficial to you. If they
agree to approve you for the program, they must submit a patient
certification form on your behalf.

Visiting the Dispensary


Additional qualifying conditions are being considered and added to the program on an ongoing basis.

Once you’ve received your patient certification, you’ll need to complete an online patient application for the medical marijuana program. The first step is to create an account at and click on ”Health Applications” then “Medical Marijuana Data Management System” in order to access the online application form. The form will request basic information from you including your proof of New York residency. If your application is approved, you’ll receive your medical marijuana card in the mail.
