Vireo Announces Free Medical Marijuana Home Delivery

Patients in New York City, Westchester and Long Island
now have access to free home delivery service throughout summer

 

New York, NY – Vireo Health of New York (“Vireo”), one of only five medical marijuana companies licensed by New York State, has announced that beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, June 21st, the first official day of summer, and running through August 31st, patients will have access to free home delivery service.

 

Vireo’s signature ‘from our greenhouse to your front door’ medical marijuana home delivery program was designed by a team of security experts, pharmacists and physicians to serve homebound patients and other New Yorkers suffering from life-threatening and debilitating diseases, like cancer and ALS. Launched in April, the program now serves medical marijuana patients residing throughout New York City, Westchester, Nassau and parts of Suffolk.

 

“The free home delivery option is designed to help keep costs down for patients and to introduce them to our convenient service,” said Ari Hoffnung, Chief Executive Officer of Vireo Health of New York. “Medical marijuana patients in New York struggle with serious diseases and will appreciate taking the ‘schlep to a dispensary in 100-degree weather’ item off their summer to-do lists.”
“We have always been staunch advocates of expanded access for patients,” said Vireo’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Stephen Dahmer. “Many of our patients, especially those with severe medical conditions and individuals above the age of 65, are particularly vulnerable to heat related health complications. Improving access to home delivery for these patients is especially important during the summer.”

 

Certified patients and caregivers interested in receiving more information can do so online at vireohealthny.com/delivery. Coupon code VIREODELIVERS can be used to save the standard $20 fee when submitting online home delivery orders. Patients are eligible for up to three free home delivery orders during the summer promotional period.
