State Adds Five Medical Marijuana Operations

New York licenses five new medical marijuana companies

Meanwhile, a bill to expand the medical marijuana program to cover those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder passed the Legislature this year.

But in an application submitted to the state two years ago, the company, also known as New York Canna, revealed plans to grow and process marijuana at 241 Farrell Road in a almost 200,000-square-foot building on a site formerly occupied by General Electric and Syroco Inc.

The fifth new registered organization, NYC-based cannabis oil specialist Citiva Medical, will steer clear of Long Island, manufacturing in Orange County and operating dispensing facilities in Dutchess, Chemung, Kings and Richmond counties.

"The New York State Department of Health is committed to growing the state's Medical Marijuana Program responsibly", said New York State Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker. The medical marijuana company said in its application it planned to lease the site.

The five existing companies that were licensed when the program began in 2016 filed a lawsuit earlier this year seeking to preemptively block the state from registering the five new companies. Neither company spokeswoman Carly Sullivan nor the state health department would provide that information Tuesday. The lone exception is New York Canna, which will have its manufacturing facility in Onondaga County.

Five more companies have been registered by the state Health Department to manufacture and distribute medical marijuana. It has yet to be sent to Gov. Cuomo.

Oneida County is expected to get its first dispensary operated by Valley Agriceuticals, another new medical marijuana company authorized by the state this week.

When state health officials first awarded licenses in 2015, Citiva Medical was one of the applicants. That company plans to grow marijuana in Orange County. The number of participating patients has increased by 72 percent since late March.

Currently, medical marijuana can be used to treat only a handful of serious illnesses and conditions, including cancer, chronic pain, HIV and AIDS, Lou Gehrig's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, epilepsy, some spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis.
