New York’s medical marijuana program has more than 105,000 registered patients as of Aug. 20, almost doubling in size since January 2018.

The state offers 15 qualifying conditions for people to obtain a cannabis card, including chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder  and opioid replacement. The state also allows for home delivery.

“The addition of New York solidly positions GTI in the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey [and] Connecticut and is firmly in-line with our strategy to enter limited license markets. We continue to execute on our plan and look forward to serving the people of New York," GTI Chief Strategy Officer Jennifer Dooley told Benzinga. 

The over-the-counter stock was up 1.56% at $8.12 at the time of publication Monday.
