Court: Medical marijuana transport case can advance

Nassau County will get two new medical marijuana dispensaries within the coming year

Currently, patients have to use an inhaler, a vaporizer or ingest capsules.

A Minnesota court has determined that a case involving the transport of medical marijuana products over state lines to Fulton County-based Vireo Health of NY may move forward to trial.

Under a series of proposals, approved patients would have access to lotions, ointments, patches and chewable tablets. The Health Department says all products will be subject to rigorous testing.

For one - companies that are registered to make and sell medical marijuana would be allowed to make more products.

The new regulations will also allow prospective patients and practitioners to enter a dispensing facility to speak directly with a representative.

Cop shot in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, NYPD says
He and different officers had been reacting to a report of a sincerely bothered individual when a man opened fire, police said. The shooting happened near Ridgewood Avenue and Essex Street at about 4:35 p.m., according to FDNY and NYPD officials.

Vireo Health of New York CEO Ari Hoffnung commended the department for the updated regulations.

Officials hope some rule changes will improve program experience for patients, practitioners, and manufacturers.

The addition of five companies to the state's medical marijuana program brings the total number of companies operating in NY to 10.

As of August 8, 2017, there were 26,561 certified patients and 1,155 registered practitioners participating in the program. The five companies already operating were opposed to letting new players in, however, saying the market isn't big enough to divvy up further. The agency said the number of certified patients has increased 77 percent since the addition of chronic pain as a qualifying condition in March.
