New York: Senate Legislation Pending To Expand Patients’ Access to Medical Cannabis

Update: The 2017 legislative session came to a close with lawmakers taking no further action on SB 6092 and SB 6308.

Update: On May 11 both bills were referred to the Health Committee.

A pair of bills are pending in the Senate to expand patients’ access to medical cannabis.

Senate Bill 6092 expands the pool of patients eligible for medical cannabis access to include those with Alzheimer’s disease, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and a number of other debilitating diseases. It also removes arbitrary caps imposed on the amount of THC permitted in oral products. 

Senate Bill 6308 allows for additional cannabis providers to operate in the state in order to improve patients’ access.
