Columbia Care NY will expand its home delivery service of medical marijuana products later this fall.
Columbia Care, one of the companies approved by the Department of Health to manufacture and sell medical marijuana, will operate in Cayuga, Onondaga, Nassau and Suffolk counties, as well as Staten Island.
“Home delivery provides a way for patients — especially those who are homebound or battling chronic, debilitating illnesses — to receive the medications they need without barriers or burdens of traveling to our pharmacies,” CEO Nicholas Vita said in a statement. “The resounding success of our delivery service thus far has led us to expand to these additional counties, with the goal of eventually providing access throughout the state to all registered patients and caregivers.”
