The University of Rochester Medical Center is supporting the applications of five companies seeking licenses to grow and sell medical marijuana under the state's Compassionate Care Act.
URMC spokesman Chris DiFrancesco said the medical center sent letters of support to the state Department of Health for all applicants who approached the center and met two criteria: the company would provide access to medical marijuana to patients who could not afford the drug; and would participate in research regarding the effectiveness of medical marijuana.
