New regulations would allow for more medical marijuana products

New Yorkers will have 30 days to comment on the proposed regulations when they are published later this month.

Five medical marijuana dispensaries will be setting up shop in New York, with two to come to Nassau County, according to an Aug 1 announcement from The New York State Department of Health.

The new regulations will allow producers to expand their product line to include topicals such as lotions, ointments and patches, as well as certain non-smokable plant material, according to a press statement.

Fiorello Pharmaceuticals, which was one of five additional medical marijuana companies that were recently licensed to operate in NY, could not be reached for comment.
