NEWBURGH — Curaleaf New York has been open for just two months, but in that time they have already served over 1,000 patients.

The facility, which works like a pharmacy, allows those with qualifying conditions like chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, and cancer to see a doctor and then register with the state to receive a medical marijuana card.

"They're telling their friends about this treatment that can get them off of things like opioids and other medications, and you can tell, the proof is there because we've hit this milestone," said Mike Conway, operations director for Curaleaf.

Later this summer, Curaleaf New York will be opening locations in Forest Hills, Queens, and Carle Place.
