Medical Marijuana in New Mexico

On April 2, 2007, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson signed into law Senate Bill 523, the "Lynn and Erin Compassionate Use Act," which became effective on July 1, 2007.  This law required the New Mexico Department of Health to formulate rules and regulations, by October 1, 2007, governing the possession, use and distribution of medical marijuana to state-qualified medical marijuana Patients. To enroll as a personal caregiver for an existing patient(s), you must complete the Medical Cannabis Caregiver Application and submit it with a copy of your New Mexico driver's license or state identification card and background check.

Visit the New Mexico Department of Health for more information.
