  • Who We Are

    Marijuana Policy Project of New York operates as a non-profit 501(c)(4) advocacy organization that focuses exclusively on marijuana policy reform in New York State.

    MPP of NY’s mission is to ensure that all patients who could benefit from medical marijuana have safe, affordable access to a variety of products and to promote marijuana policies that are based on compassion and justice.

  • What we do

    New York’s medical marijuana program has been roundly criticized for being unduly restrictive and failing to provide meaningful access for patients. Due to ongoing efforts by patients, advocacy organizations, and lawmakers, some progress has been made, but there is much more work to be done!

  • How can you help?

    Weigh in with the Department of Health to support its proposed improvements to the state’s medical cannabis program and to urge it to make other changes.
