Noteworthy Information : New York has a restrictive dispensary system, along with limited doctor participation and product availability, though the state is working on trying to improve the system. Smoking is not permitted and the regulations prohibit edibles. On September 1, 2018, the New York Police Department began issuing tickets for people who smoke marijuana in public instead of arresting them. Opioid Use was added as a qualifying condition. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo stated that he would push to legalize recreational marijuana in 2019. Two senate bills have been filed: one to allow patients to smoke marijuana and one which would permit qualifying students to have medical cannabis administered at school.
