The employee who left Hill in a auto has been fired, and Thornton's lawyer plans to respond to the order "as necessary". We are conducting a thorough investigation and are assisting law enforcement with their criminal investigation.

The new rules will allow doctors to take a two-hour course before becoming a registered provider of medical marijuana, down from the current four-hour course. The changes include having shortened versions of the practitioner's course required to certify patients for medical marijuana.

Under the new regulations, the DOH is also loosening restrictions on advertising at dispensaries and "clarifying laboratory testing methods".

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.
