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.

As of Aug 1 there were 25,736 patients certified for medical marijuana treatment.

Last week, the state approved five new companies to manufacture and distribute the drug, adding to the five that began operating past year. That number increased by 10,744, or 72 percent, since March when the Department of Health added chronic pain as an eligible condition, according to Zucker.
