    The New York health department has launched its online registration system for patients to buy medical marijuana when it becomes available in January.

    Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker says the system for certifications and registrations means "qualified patients will soon have access to treatment they need."

    According to the department, patients need certification from a registered doctor, then have to access the online system to apply for a registry identification card.

    They also need photo identification and documentation of state residency.
