    I've used Elevate for all of my MMJ documentation, including initial application, renewals, and updates to my card. Every time, without fail, Elevate has come through for me. Most recently I paid for the full service upgrade, and they had my application done, submitted, and approved in ONE day. Couldn't be more satisfied.

    Booked an appointment at 2pm Thursday afternoon and Elevate Holistics sent me a text at 9pm Saturday night letting me know my application is ready for payment and to be sent to the state, wow. Overall a wonderful experience! Coming from a recreationally legal state to a medically legal state I honestly expected the worst (proof of prescription medications, years of health history, etc); Elevate Holistics made everything an incredibly smooth process with none of the above mentioned we're needed - just honest, chronic issues that benefit from cannabis products!

Getting A Medical Marijuana Card in NY

Medical Marijuana Cards In New York

Medical marijuana has been legal in New York since 2014, and the state recently legalized recreational marijuana as well. Marijuana legalization in New York has been an exciting step forward for so many patients that benefit from using cannabis.

However, having a New York medical card can still be very helpful even though recreational use is legal. A medical card can help you access lower tax rates and ensures you get purchasing priority in the event of a marijuana shortage. Let’s take a look at how to get a medical marijuana card in New York, NY marijuana law, and what to expect now that marijuana’s legalized in NY.

Is marijuana legal in New York?

Is weed legal in NY? After extensive New York marijuana legalization efforts, marijuana is legal for both recreational and medical use. New York had technically decriminalized marijuana in the 1970s, but a loophole about possession in public view meant that marijuana-related arrests and convictions remained at a high level, especially in New York City.

The city legalized medical marijuana in 2014, and New York dispensary sales started in 2016. Beginning in 2018, state lawmakers started pushing for legal recreational marijuana in New York. After years of debate and revision, a recreational New York legalization bill passed in 2021. We can expect recreational dispensaries to start opening in 2022 and beyond.

Qualifying Conditions For A Medical Card In New York

There are currently 21 qualifying conditions for a medical card in NY. These include a wide variety of chronic health conditions as well as issues like chronic or severe painseizuressevere nausea, and opioid use disorder. You must be diagnosed with one of these conditions by NY cannabis doctors in order to get your medical card.

What qualifies you for medical weed in NY?

The qualifying conditions for medical cannabis in New York are the following:

How To Get Medical Marijuanas Card In NY

Many people wonder how to get a medical card in NY, but the process is fairly straightforward. The first step is to find a doctor that has a NY medical marijuana license who can determine whether or not you meet the requirements for a medical marijuana prescription.

If the doctor determines that you are eligible, the next step to get your NY medical card online is to go to and create an account. You can then go to the “Health Applications” section, where you will upload your certification, answer some questions about yourself, and pay the $50 application fee. If you need a caregiver, you can designate up to 2 at any time during the process.

Once you have been approved, the New York state government will issue you a temporary ID. You will later receive your official medical marijuana card in the mail.

How much does a medical marijuana card cost?

The fee to get a medical marijuana card in NY is $50. The state of New York is currently waiving the fee for patients and caregivers, although this could change in the future. It’s also important to note that you will need to pay for your doctor’s visit to get your certification, as health insurance in the US doesn’t currently cover medical marijuana-related expenses. Elevate Holistics offers virtual doctor’s visits starting at $75 each.

Where To Buy Medical Marijuana In New York

You can buy medical marijuana at dispensaries throughout the state of New York. New York marijuana laws currently allow for each marijuana grower to operate four dispensaries throughout the state. While the law originally only allowed for five growers, the program has now been expanded to 10 growers. There are multiple dispensaries within New York City as well as dispensaries in other New York cities and towns to provide access to people throughout the entire state.

New York State Dispensaries

In order to visit a dispensary, you will need your medical marijuana card and physician’s recommendation. If you are unsure of what type of medical marijuana you need, the team at the dispensary should be able to help you choose a product that is right for you.

Can you buy marijuana online?

Although marijuana legalization in NY passed in 2021, you cannot buy marijuana products online and have them shipped to your home. However, many medical marijuana dispensaries do allow you to pre-order products online and then pick them up in person at the dispensary. If you already know what you want, this streamlines the purchasing process and has the added benefit of reducing contact during the COVID-19 pandemic.

How much is medical marijuana in NY?

The cost of medical marijuana in New York is going to vary depending on what products you buy and your current consumption habits. Some people find that they spend only $50 for a month’s supply, while others will spend upwards of $300. Most people find themselves in the $100 range for a month’s supply. We can expect prices to change as New York legalizes recreational marijuana and supply chain patterns change.

How To Renew A Medical Card Online In New York

Your medical marijuana registration in NY lasts for one year once you have been approved. In order to do this, you will first need to get another evaluation from your doctor. Then, you can go online to complete the renewal form, which is very similar to the initial form you filled out when registering. It’s best to submit your renewal within 30 days of the expiration date to ensure that you don’t lose access to the products that you need.

If you have a medical card, where can you smoke?

Prior to 2021, New York had strict laws that prohibited smoking in public. This meant that patients with medical marijuana cards could only smoke in private residences. This also means that if you are living in a rental unit, you need permission from your landlord in order to smoke.

However, with New York recreational weed 2021 laws, this will change. This law will allow anyone to smoke weed anywhere you can also smoke tobacco. This means you will be able to smoke in public outdoors, and businesses will have the option to allow patrons to smoke indoors as well. This means we may see cafes, hotels, bars, and shops that allow smoking.

New York Marijuana Reciprocity

If you are not a New York resident but travel to New York frequently, you may be wondering whether you can use an out-of-state medical card in New York. Unfortunately, current New York weed laws do not allow for medical marijuana reciprocity, which means that you cannot use an out-of-state medical card. However, there are many other states that do allow for medical marijuana reciprocity and will accept New York medical cards. These states are Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and Hawaii. Washington D.C. also has medical marijuana reciprocity.

Can medical marijuana patients grow their own plants in New York?

Medical marijuana patients in New York are now permitted to grow up to six marijuana plants in their home. This can be extremely helpful for patients who consume large quantities of marijuana and are looking to save money. You must be over the age of 21 to grow marijuana plants in your home. Landlords also have the option to limit marijuana growth on their properties, so it’s important to check your lease before starting to grow medical marijuana. It’s important to keep in mind that growing marijuana plants does require specific equipment, as they need to be kept at a certain temperature and humidity level.

If you want to grow more marijuana plants in New York, you will need a grow license. Many people wonder how to get a grow license in New York 2021. Grow licenses in New York are very competitive and highly regulated – right now, there are only 10 growers licensed in New York.
