Open Sunday to Saturday 8AM to 10PM

Also known as New York City and County, or just "The City," Manhattan is the metropolitan area's most densely populated borough with over 1.6 million residents living in it's 22.82 mi² boundary. Located mostly on Manhattan Island and surrounded by the East, Harlem and Hudson Rivers, Manhattan serves as both the cultural and financial center of The Big Apple. Recreational marijuana is not legal yet in New York, but medical marijuana is.

NuggMD's expert physicians are proud to have helped thousands of Manhattan medical marijuana patients explore cannabis as a complement or alternative to traditional pharmaceutical medications and medical treatments. Recently, New York added both chronic pain and PTSD to its list of qualifying conditions, giving millions of New Yorkers an alternative to addictive opiates and other potentially damaging medications.

What Satisfied Manhattan Patients are Saying

NuggMD made the process to obtain a New York medical marijuana certification incredibly easy and fuss-free. From start to finish was within the same-day which was much quicker than I thought it would be. The customer service was friendly and supportive for each step. The cost is also more than reasonable.

I highly recommend NuggMD.

These guys made it super easy to get certified. Except for a few technological issues from my end, it was straightforward and quick. I filled out the application, talked to the doctor within 20 minutes, and had my certificate later that afternoon.

Amazing is just one word to describe them. To start I was very leary in the first place being in NY the hardest state to get anything done. after I started and got in the staff member (Adam) was able to help make sure that I was connected still after a computer glitch on my end. The Doctor (S.A. MD) was very attentive, knowledgeable, and did not hesitate to answer any question I had.  I would definitely recommend this site to anyone not able to make a physical place .

Cannabis Laws for Manhattan, New York

New York has decriminalized possession of less than 2 ounces. This doesn't mean it's not an arrestable offense; but since it's classified as a violation instead of a misdemeanor, there will be no prison time or criminal record involved. Arrest is unlikely unless the person can't be properly identified or they have outstanding warrants. Instead, the fine for less than an ounce is $50 and the fine for 1 - 2 ounces is $200.

If a person possesses more than two ounces, they will most likely be arrested and charged criminally. Medical possession is completely legal in Manhattan so long as the patient only possesses a 30-day supply as recommended by their physician. Manhattan medical marijuana card holders have an additional advantage over upstate New Yorkers as well. New York City recently passed a ban on pre-employment marijuana drug testing for most non-safety-sensitive jobs. There are a lot of loopholes though, so be sure to check the legislation to see if your prospective job is still allowed to test. Some examples of jobs that can still do pre-employment screening for marijuana are construction workers, police officers, truck drivers, teachers, and other jobs that can significantly affect public safety. (See Int. No. 1445-A)
