Do I have to be a New York resident to get a medical cannabis certification in New York?

Yes, you must be a New York resident to get medical cannabis certification in New York and you must provide adequate identification.


You need to provide proof of residency in order to qualify for the New York State MMJ program. However, if you are a non-New York state resident temporarily residing in New York for the care and treatment of a qualified condition, and you have been certified by a registered practitioner, you may be eligible but you must provide documentation showing proof of temporary residence in New York state. Examples include, but are not limited to: a copy of a lease, a utility bill, a hospital bill, or other documentation as approved by the NYDOH.
