Patients And Families Gather To Demand Changes To New York’s Broken Medical Marijuana Law

Today, dozens of advocates gathered in Albany to urge legislators to support a slate of bills that would amend the Compassionate Care Act, New York’s medical marijuana law. The law, which was passed in June of 2014, took eighteen months to implement and has been criticized for being one of the most restrictive and burdensome programs in the country. Launched in January of this year, to date, only 494 of the state’s 79,000 physicians have agreed to participate and only 2,390 patients have been certified by their doctors to enroll in the program. This lackluster start is likely due to a number of barriers and restrictions in the program that make it both difficult and unappealing for physicians and patients to participate.

“The current law is simply too narrow, with too few registered organizations serving too few patients who need relief,” said Assembly Health Committee Chair Richard N. Gottfried, sponsor of the original legislation.  “The changes the Executive made to the legislation and to the program severely limited the program and have made it harder than it should be for patients to access critical medical care.  These bills would bring the law more into line with the original bill – broadening the list of eligible conditions, expanding the number of dispensaries, and removing arbitrary restrictions on delivery methods such as smoking.”

Marijuana advocates have been eyeballing Rhode Island for the past couple of years as being a prime candidate to become one of the first states to end prohibition by way of the state legislature, but so far lawmakers have missed every opportunity to bring this progressive ideal to fruition.

However, despite House speaker Nicholas Mattiello’s indecision over the issue and his suggestion that Rhode Island should wait to see what happens in Massachusetts before taking any action, a key House committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on Tuesday that could finally give way to marijuana being taxed and regulated throughout the state in a manner similar to alcohol.
