US (NY): Medical cannabis patients allowed to grow their own cannabis

As New York cannabis regulators continue to accept applications for the first adult-use cannabis retailer licenses from people directly impacted by the drug war, officials on Tuesday, the 20th of September, voted to adopt home grow rules for medical cannabis patients, as well as another round of conditional cannabis processor and cultivator business applications.

The Cannabis Control Board (CCB) accepted a resolution to have the state adopt rules for medical cannabis patients to grow their own plants for personal use. They also accepted updated hemp cannabinoid regulations and gave the green light to a limited partnership agreement between the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) and Social Equity Impact Ventures to advance industry equity.

The adoption of the medical cannabis home grow resolution comes about a year after draft regulations were first proposed and several months after the board accepted revised rules following a public comment period. Now CCB has directed the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) to formally send the approved regulations to the New York State Department of State.

In general, the rule will allow registered patients and caregivers to grow up to six plants, only three of which could be mature. They could possess up to five pounds of cannabis-derived from those plants, which is consistent with the state’s adult-use legalization law.
