In 2012, New York launched its Medical Use of Marijuana Program (MUP), becoming the 18th state in the US to legalize medical marijuana for patients with qualifying conditions. The program has evolved significantly, with dispensaries opening doors in 2016 and major updates in 2018. Now, it provides relief to patients with a wide range of debilitating conditions.
