Author: Monterey Bud 13/11/2017 - 17:04:00

On Veterans Day, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a legislative package that allows individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to acquire and utilize medical marijuana as a treatment in the Empire State. 

Effective immediately, the Gov. signed the legislation into law Saturday allowing patients with PTSD to participate in New York’s medical marijuana program. 

Home to 838,000 veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) spent $6.3 billion on Medicare expenditures during 2016. As of September 2013, the five New York counties with the largest military veteran populations include Suffolk 79,600; Erie, 65,000; Queens, 58,600; Nassau, 57,900, and Kings County with 53,100 veterans.
