New York Reveals List of Doctors Allowed to Prescribe Medical Marijuana

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — New York has published a partial list of doctors and other providers registered to prescribe medical marijuana, information the state had been keeping under wraps.

The list includes 22 Central New York providers — doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, most of them in Onondaga County.

The list only includes providers who have agreed to be publicly identified. The state health department said it is prohibited from identifying medical marijuana providers without their consent.

Nearly 1,000 providers statewide are registered to certify patients for medical marijuana, but only 32 percent are included on the public list.

Finding participating doctors has been a hassle for many patients, who’ve been forced to make cold calls to doctors’ practices to find medical marijuana prescribers. The state said the new list will make it easier for eligible patients to access medical marijuana.

Patients must be certified by a provider before they can buy medical marijuana from a dispensary. [Read more at Syracuse.com]
