    New Mexico Marijuana Laws
    New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program
    New Mexico Department of Health

    The New Mexico Cannabis Program allows for the use of medical marijuana for qualifying patients under New Mexico law. Currently, qualifying medical conditions include autism spectrum disorder, cancer, Crohn’s disease, seizures, glaucoma, HIV/Aids, to name a few. If you don’t have a qualifying medical condition, and your MJ doctor feels your medical condition would benefit from medical cannabis treatment, you may submit a petition for your medical condition to be added to the list of qualifying medical conditions. Petitions must be in a prescribed format, and they must be mailed or hand delivered to the Medical Cannabis Program office. There is a petition review by the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board, and they will either recommend the patient for medical marijuana or not. If they do recommend the use of medical marijuana for your condition, the Advisory Board will submit their decision to the Secretary of the Department of Health for consideration. If approved for medical cannabis, the New Mexico Department of Health suggests that you track the cannabis products you use, so you may determine which products work best for you. You may want to share this information with your MJ provider at a follow-up visit, so he or she is aware and can consult with you regarding the effects of the marijuana products you’ve been using. Also please note some MJ doctors offer telemedicine as an appointment option, so if interested, check with your MJ doctor. National Medical Marijuana Services has a patient journal that you may use to track your medical marijuana product experiences. Log in to use it.

    Due to COVID-19, telemedicine is allowed in New Mexico. If interested in telemedicine, contact your MMJ doctor to determine if this is a possibility.
