      New York Medical Marijuana Card Certification

      The Big Apple and the rest of the Empire State took its first bite of medical cannabis in 2014 when Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation into law. Ever since, Gov. Cuomo has gone above and beyond attempting to legalize cannabis recreationally, even having a Pot Summit in 2019 with other East Coast governors.

      In 2018, Gov. Cuomo added PTSD to the list of conditions, and in 2018, allowed medical cannabis to be used for opioid use disorder. As far as Gov. Cuomo is concerned, recreational cannabis would answer a lot of woes along with benefiting the physical wellbeing of thousands of citizens who suffer from a list of the state’s qualifying conditions. The second benefit recreational cannabis would bring in is up to 1.3 billion dollars in tax revenue, a number Cuomo predicted for 2019 to no avail.

      Since COVID-19, any efforts to move forward with recreational use have taken a back seat to Gov. Cuomo’s number one priority–the safety of New York citizens. Assumingly after there is more certainty regarding COVID-19, Gov. Cuomo will continue his progressive efforts to push recreational use forward as seen so recently in the past.
