What is the process for legally obtaining medical cannabis in the State of New York?
Medical marijuana, or Cannabis, has been used for medical purposes for thousands of years in ancient China, India, and Egypt. In 1850, Cannabis was introduced to the United States Pharmacopeia for medicinal uses. But by the end of the 19th century, people began to reduce the use of Cannabis in medicine, and the states started legislating bills to regulate the purchase and ownership of Cannabis. Some states even started to restrict its availability as a medication.
In 1941, the U.S. government had removed Cannabis from the U.S. Pharmacopeia. After all these strict federal prohibitions, interest in cannabis as medication enjoyed a resurgence the 1970s and 1980s, and in 1996, California was the first U.S. state that authorized Cannabis as a medicine. However, In New York, it was legalized in 2014 by the state government with some rules and regulations.
