New York: Medical Marijuana Expansion Is Happening
New York officials are finally preparing to step it up a notch in respect to the state’s medical marijuana program.
On Tuesday, the Department of Health submitted the necessary documentation to make the concept of cannabis for medicinal use a little more accessible to patients across the state. The first step, according to reports, is an amendment to the current rules that will give nurse practitioners and physician assistants the freedom to write patient certifications.
Unfortunately, the department is still trying to determine whether to include “chronic pain” on its list of qualified conditions. That decision is expected to be made sometime before the end of the month.

Legal Pot Brings Temporary Tax Break for Some Medical Users
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Some California medical marijuana users are getting a tax break.
State officials announced Thursday that certain purchases of medical cannabis are now exempt from sales taxes, under the law approved by voters this month that legalized recreational pot in California.
Under the new law known as Proposition 64, a 15 percent excise tax will be imposed in January 2018 upon purchasers of all marijuana and marijuana products, including medical cannabis. A tax on cultivators will also be imposed.
Until then, the tax holiday goes to people who make purchases with a medical marijuana identification card from the California Department of Public Health.
