Sponsored Content - Want to register for New York's medical marijuana program, but not sure how? A new service let's you complete the entire process online, from home!


California has come up with a lot of great ideas like the Hula Hoop, the Barbie Doll, and the Egg McMuffin, but the greatest idea from the Golden State is just now hitting the Empire State - New York medical marijuana cards!

Now, New Yorkers can get a doctor's recommendation and examination online from the privacy of their own home on a laptop, PC or smartphone, thanks to NuggMD.

The company has been helping connect medical marijuana patients with cannabis-friendly doctors and medical marijuana dispensaries on the West Coast for nearly three years, and they have just rolled out their mmj telemedicine platform in New York State.

Look how easy NuggMD makes getting your medical marijuana card online:

If you are a legal resident of New York State with a state issued ID card, you can go to NuggMD's website and sign up.

After filling out a basic medical questionnaire to expedite the online 420 evaluation, you will be connected with a licensed NY medical marijuana doctor via video conference for about 5 to 10 minutes. The doctor may recommend specific cannabis products and dosage for your condition, and you are free to ask the doctor anything you want. If you are approved, you'll receive an email from the New York State Medical Marijuana program confirming your registration, and NuggMD will help you obtain the actual medical marijuana card. Total cost is $199 for first-time patients and your certificate is valid for one year, after which each 12-month renewal will set you back $99. If you are not approved, you pay nothing. Zero.
