Restrictive Medical Marijuana Law Prepared By New York

2015_gmm_11X17_calgary_webThe New York Times reports that the new bill would only allow for 20 medical dispensaries, run by five organizations, to be established throughout the state, which would handcuff accessibility for many potential patients.

Only patients suffering from a shortlist of 10 “severe debilitating or life-threatening” conditions, ranging from multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease to ALS and AIDS, would be allowed to acquire medical marijuana.

This means that many of marijuana’s potential patients won’t be able to get their hands on it. For those who do qualify, another odd restriction dictates that the medical marijuana can’t be smoked.
