How To Get Your New York Medical Card Today


Answer a series of questions

To acquire a medical marijuana identification card (MMIC) to purchase medical cannabis, you’ll have to be approved by a doctor. An MMIC is necessary for cannabis consumption; otherwise, without it, it may be considered as a felony to consume cannabis, even if it’s for medicinal purposes.

With Farmacist, it only takes 30 seconds to a couple of minutes to get your identification card. To get evaluated, a doctor will ask you a series of questions, and you’ll have to answer them, explaining how medicinal cannabis is vital to get your health better. The entire process will take approximately a minute. Your medical marijuana identification card will be delivered to you in an instant if you’re approved. You can then add it to your Apple or Google watch.


A medical doctor reviews your answers

You must be approved by a medical doctor to receive medical marijuana for the management or treatment of your medical condition. During your evaluation, the doctor will need you to deliver legal and medical information.

All this is necessary to see if you’re eligible to get certified for acquiring medical marijuana. Your eligibility depends on your doctor’s approval. The doctor will check the given data, review the answers you have provided, and determine if you qualify for the usage of medical marijuana in New York.


Get your medical card approved

To get your medical card approved, you will have to qualify for one of the qualifying conditions stated by New York that are treatable by medical cannabis.

About Medical Marijuana in New York

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and legislative leaders struck an agreement on the details of legalizing marijuana in the Empire State in late March, and state legislators approved the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) on March 30. The following day, Governor Cuomo signed a measure legalizing adult-use marijuana, making New York the 16th state to end marijuana prohibition.

New York joins Illinois and Vermont as the third state to embrace a legalization policy by passing a bill via its state legislature. Thirteen more states have legalized marijuana through voter initiatives at the time of this writing.

Summary of the law

  • Three ounces of marijuana and 24 grams of marijuana concentrate are allowed in personal possession.
  • With more than one adult, a maximum of 12 plants can be planted per household.
  • For adults above the age of 21, three mature plants and three immature plants.
  • Maximum of six mature and six immature plants per household
  • Home cultivation will not be legalized until officials establish guidelines. Regulators have up to six months for medical patients and no later than 18 months for adult-use customers after the first retail adult-use sales begin.
  • Marijuana can be delivered by retailers, microbusinesses, and delivery licenses.
  • Cultivators are not allowed to have delivery licenses.
  • A single entity may not own more than one delivery license.
  • Per delivery licensee, no more than 25 full-time employees are allowed.
  • The issuing of delivery licenses should favor applicants who are socially and economically disadvantaged.
  • The New York State Cannabis Control Board and the Office of Cannabis Management are established by legislation.
  • The Office of Marijuana Management, a new independent institution inside the New York State Liquor Authority, will be in charge of regulating the adult-use marijuana market and the existing medicinal marijuana and hemp programs, with a five-member Marijuana Control Board overseeing everything. The governor will appoint three members, one of whom will be the chairperson. One member will be chosen by each of the President of the Senate and Speaker of the Assembly.
