Dispensary to begin local delivery

Curaleaf New York, which earlier this year opened an office in Newburgh to dispense medical marijuana, says it soon plans to begin home delivery.

The drug is legal for use in New York with a prescription by patients suffering from cancer, PTSD, chronic pain and other conditions. Curaleaf says orders will be paid through bank account transfers with an app called CanPay. (Because marijuana is illegal under federal law, banks and credit card companies typically will not handle payments.) There are 77,600 patients certified in New York to use medical marijuana.
