Medical Marijuana
with Gene Epstein

In 2014, New York became the 23rd state to legalize marijuana use for a handful of specific medical conditions. But New York State’s medical marijuana program is the most restrictive program in the country. This presents a small problem, according to Gene P. Epstein, FNP, one of New York’s growing list of individuals that can certify you for a medical marijuana card. “Right now, marijuana, as you may know it, is not legal in the state”.

Epstein, a psychology major and paramedic in New York City for over ten years, has 20 years experience as a nurse practitioner in emergency rooms plus over 20 years EMS experience. “Back then I dealt with a lot of pain issues. I discovered that Cannabis works very well on pain. However there were not any studies performed in this country due to Cannabis being a schedule one drug, the same class as heroin and cocaine,”

In this class, you will find out all the details you want to know about legal marijuana in New York State. Come with paper and pencil and all your questions.
