Other recent enhancements to New York State's Medical Marijuana Program include adding chronic pain as a qualifying condition, permitting home delivery, empowering nurse practitioners and physician assistants to certify patients, and publishing a list of registered practitioners who have consented to be listed publicly.

Integrating five additional registered organizations into the industry utilizing a phased-in approach was a recommendation of the Department's two-year report on the Medical Use of Marijuana Under the Compassionate Care Act.

The five first companies to register and to form the Medical Cannabis Industry Alliance are New York Canna, Valley Agriceuticals, Citify Medical and Ferrell Pharmaceuticals.

The announcement comes as the five current "registered organizations", as they are known, were due for renewal of their licenses, which are good for two years at a time.

NY state has authorized five more organizations to manufacture and dispense medical marijuana to improve patient access to dispensing facilities across the state. Neither company spokeswoman Carly Sullivan nor the state health department would provide that information Tuesday.

There are already three dispensaries in Onondaga County operated by other companies.

Minnesota's two companies were registered for business through December 2017, but Ehlinger said they needed a decision now so they could plan for two more years of operations.

PalliaTech NY, which will manufacture in Ulster County and operate dispensaries in Nassau, Orange and Queens counties and the Plattsburgh area. The medical marijuana company said in its application it planned to lease the site. Also coming to Suffolk is Westchester County-based Valley Agricueticals, which will grow its wares in Orange County and dispense in Long Island and Brooklyn, as well as Oneida and Dutchess counties, according to the health department.

The two now serve an active registry of more than 6,000 patients with conditions such as glaucoma, cancer and intractable pain - and are expected to see more patients starting August 1, when post-traumatic stress disorder is added as a qualifying condition for Minnesota's program.

Since March, there has been a 72 percent increase in certified patients.
