Caregivers

We can all use a little help sometimes.

Care Givers for Medical Marijuana in New York

The Role of Designated Caregivers

Some patients registered with the Health Department’s Medical Marijuana Program may not be able to get medical marijuana products. Patients who cannot physically commute to dispensing facilities can appoint two caregivers who can pick up the medication on the patient’s behalf. Caregivers must also be registered with the Health Department and obtain a Registry Identification Card. In addition to collecting the medication, caregivers can also assist patients in administering approved medical marijuana products.
