New Mexico: Legislation Pending to Expand Medical Cannabis Program

Posted by on January 24, 2017

Legislation is pending, Senate Bill 8, to amend the state’s medical cannabis program in a manner that would better serve patients’ needs.

Specifically, the measure would amend patient possession limits so that qualified persons may possess up to five ounces of herbal cannabis per month, and it would mandate the Health Department to issue identification cards in an expedited manner. It would also extend the term of state-issued identification cards from one-year to three years for specific patients.

Senate Bill 8 would also increase the amount of medical cannabis that may be legally cultivated by licensed producers and would prohibit regulators from imposing any limits with regard to THC potency.

Please use the pre-written letter below to urge your elected officials to move forward with this important legislation.
