Growing number of medical marijuana suppliers in NY

As of Tuesday, there were 25,736 certified patients and 1,139 registered practitioners participating in New York's Medical Marijuana Program, according to the Department of Health.

The New York State Department of Health today announced that it has authorized five additional registered organizations (ROs) to manufacture and dispense medical marijuana in New York State, an initiative aimed at improving patient access and the geographic distribution of dispensing facilities across the state.

Minnesota's two companies were registered for business through December 2017, but Ehlinger said they needed a decision now so they could plan for two more years of operations. New York Canna will manufacture in Onondaga County, and PalliaTech NY will manufacture in Ulster County.

It will manufacture the medical marijuana in Schnedectady County, but will have four dispensaries, including one in Monroe County.

Minnesota's two medical marijuana growers received state approval Wednesday to continue supplying cannabis to patients, even though one was ensnared in a criminal case involving ex-employees who allegedly smuggled a half-million dollars worth of cannabis oil out of the state.

In a scientific first, disease gene 'edited' in human embryos
Speculation swirled after reports came out last week that a group of USA scientists had CRISPR'd human embryos for the first time. Researchers worked with healthy egg cells, donated by women, and sperm of a man affected by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy .

Prescription strength: New York State has licensed five new medical marijuana companies to open dispensaries, including as many as four on Long Island. The dispensary later was established in the former Peckham Asphalt storage building on state Route 28.

The proposed locations of Terradiol's medical marijuana dispensaries have changed since it filed its application in 2015.

"The New York State Department of Health is committed to growing the state's Medical Marijuana Program responsibly", Zucker said Tuesday. Also included in the regulations were certain spinal cord injuries, epilepsy, inflammatory bowel disease, neuropathies and Huntington's disease and symptoms including severe or chronic pain, seizures, severe nausea, persistent muscle spasms and wasting syndrome.

The announcement comes as the five current "registered organizations", as they are known, were due for renewal of their licenses, which are good for two years at a time.

Valley Agriceuticals will manufacture in Orange County and have dispensing facilities in Kings, Oneida, Suffolk, and Dutchess Counties.
