Legalized Marijuana Regulations Take Affect

New York State officials have approved regulations for the medical marijuana program that is set to take affect next year. The law was signed last July and allows qualified patients access to liquid and oil forms of the drug, which can be added to edibles as well. According to regulations there will be only five businesses in New York that can apply with a $10,000 review fee and $200,000 registration fee that is good for two years. The business will be allowed to grow, process, and sell the drug legally, with four dispensaries each statewide. Recently patients who have been diagnosed with qualifying illnesses have expressed concern of cost and access to the treatment, though regulations state that while the prices are set for the product, the identification card fee can be waived if they qualify financially.
