(Albany, NY) -- New York is easing up on its medical marijuana rules starting today.
Dispensaries are now permitted to sell patches, lotions, ointments, lozenges and certain chewables to certified patients. Only liquids, oils and vapors were allowed under the state's tough restrictions that ban smokable marijuana. The new rules also permit a doctor to take a two-hour course to become a registered provider, down from four hours. It's seen as a way to encourage more doctors to participate in New York's medical marijuana program.
