New York Magazine’s Daily Intelligencer is reporting that New York state’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened today, near Manhattan’s Union Square. The new dispensary will be staffed by four pharmacists, with potential for up to 20 pharmacists serving patients with ALS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Huntington’s disease, neuropathies, cancer, HIV/AIDS, epilepsy and spinal cord injuries — currently the only illnesses for which patients can receive a prescription for marijuana. Patients will be able to procure an eyedropper of liquid marijuana to place under the tongue — a result of the state’s efforts to prevent smoking and reduce potential costs for patients by eliminating the need for vaporizers or extract products.  (Daily Intelligencer)
