Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA recommends that New York legislators focus on patient equity within the cannabis market. This includes providing free patient registration fees, multi-year registrations to cut down on administrative paperwork for patients, and prioritizing opening more medical dispensaries to serve the many underserved populations and areas in the state.

In light of the adult use/recreational laws, New York should also focus on passing provisions included in ASA’s Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist.
