The New York State Department of Health is conducting its own investigation into the matter, but would not release information until the probe is complete. But officials say they're continuing to look for ways to tinker with the rules to make it easier for patients to get the help they need. The facility produces five strains of cannabis oils that are used to treat different ailments. Fiorello is building a production facility in Glenville (Hoffnung was a former executive at Fiorello Pharmaceuticals, according to an article in Crain's New York).

Currently, patients have to use an inhaler, a vaporizer or ingest capsules.

The addition of five companies to the state's medical marijuana program brings the total number of companies operating in NY to 10.
