Medical marijuana may sprout on vacant Syracuse industrial site

Medical marijuana may sprout on vacant Syracuse industrial site

Five more companies have been registered by the state Health Department to manufacture and distribute medical marijuana.

The state health commissioner, Dr. Ed Ehlinger, said he re-registered Minnesota Medical Solutions and LeafLine Labs for two more years after reviewing their medical and economic contributions since the state legalized medical cannabis in 2015.

State Sen. Diane Savino, a Staten Island Democrat who sponsored the bill creating the medical marijuana program, had mixed feelings about the expansion of companies.

Unlike the huge amount of options for the Model S, the 3 receives relatively fewer goodies, a tactic no doubt meant to lower cost. The experience influenced the vehicle maker's decision to radically simplify the design and customization options for Model 3 .

According to the Department of Health, Citiva Medical's manufacturing facility will be in Orange County. They will have dispensing facilities in 14 counties across the state. Locations weren't disclosed immediately in large part because some companies were looking to finalizing sites after the state decided on licenses. Two new dispensaries, operated by other companies, will be in Dutchess County, the state said in the same announcement. NY launched its medical marijuana program past year.

There are already three dispensaries in Onondaga County operated by other companies. That company plans to grow marijuana in Orange County.

Minnesota regulators this year tightened state oversight of medical marijuana growers by adding a broader menu of sanctions and fines for violations and requiring that companies use "seed to sale" tracking software to monitor the whereabouts of their products.

The officer said one person, whose identity is being ascertained, was hit by a bullet in the shoulder and rushed to a hospital. Two militants were killed in an encounter with security forces in south Kashmir's Pulwama district on Sunday, officials said.

As of Tuesday, 25,736 patients were registered for the program.

These numbers show that the numbers of users has grown to 72% more since March (10,744 more patients). A proposal by a company called New York Growing Partners to manufacture medical marijuana in Saugerties was turned down at that time, but the state did approve a medical marijuana dispensary, operated by Etain LLC, at a site in the town of Ulster.

Currently, medical marijuana can be used to treat only a handful of serious illnesses and conditions, including cancer, chronic pain, HIV and AIDS, Lou Gehrig's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, epilepsy, some spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis.
