    New York State Nurses Association

    Medical Use of Marijuana

    The intent of this position statement is to acknowledge the role of nurses to advocate for patient access to marijuana for therapeutic purposes and support legislation that would legalize medical marijuana for symptom relief.


    The New York State Nurses Association:

    • Endorses the American Nurses Association Position Statement for Support of Safe Access to Therapeutic Marijuana/Cannabis (ANA, 2004). 
    • Supports legislative efforts in New York State that would amend Article 33 of Public Health Law and allow the growth and use of marijuana for patients whose symptoms are within designated guidelines. 
    • Endorses the use of marijuana for serious and life-threatening medical conditions as defined by proposed New York State legislation.
