Is there financial assistance from New York State if I cannot afford to get my medical marijuana card?

No, unfortunately there is not financial assistance for the medical marijuana card at this time. It is also not covered by health insurance.


While there is no financial assistance from the state for purchasing medical cannabis, the NYDOH currently waives the $50 fee for patients and caregivers. Please visit https://www.health.ny.gov/regulations/medical_marijuana/faq.htm for more information.
