Medical Marijuana Laws in Utica, NY

New York's Department of Health limits the usage of medical marijuana to vape cartridges, extracts, tinctures, capsules, suppositories, topicals, and oils containing THC & CBD. Sale of whole cannabis flower or bud is allowed, but for vaping purposes only. The traditional practice of smoking is prohibited. Edibles are also prohibited under the current law, although cultivators can infuse beverages and food with cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating compound of cannabis. 

Medical marijuana has been legal in New York since the Compassionate Care Act was signed in 2014. In 2019, possession of 2 ounces was decriminalized, revising it from a crime to a violation. Generally, a patient may not possess more than a 30-day supply of the medicine for it to remain legal in Utica. However, the law entitles you to obtain a fresh 30-day supply during the last 7 days of your previously held stock. 

Adult-use still remains illegal, so does personal cultivation, smoking in public, and the sale or gifting of any amount. 

Employers cannot discriminate against patients who have signed up for the medical marijuana program, however, they are allowed to enact policies that prohibit employees from performing their duties while impaired under the substance.
