Deadline to Apply as a Registered Organization is Quickly Approaching

By: Nicole Ozminkowski

On April 27, 2015, the New York State Department of Health ("DOH") announced that it would begin accepting applications from businesses interested in manufacturing and dispensing medical marijuana under the Compassionate Care Act.

The deadline to apply for one of the five registered organization licenses was initially May 29, 2015. More recently, the Department has extended the deadline to June 5, 2015. The Department has not, however, extended the timeframe within which it expects to issue the registrations. The DOH has set an ambitious timeline to get the program up and running and hopes to make its selection for the limited registered organization licenses this summer.

More information as provided by the DOH can be found in the Governor's press release and on the DOH's web page on medical marijuana.
