Applications to New Mexico’s medical marijuana program have been surging lately, and the state hasn’t been able to keep up. Now, with many patients waiting longer for marijuana prescriptions, the state auditor is warning the Department of Health to speed up its process or face a special audit.
Next week on the KUNM Call In Show, we’ll be talking about New Mexico’s medical cannabis program—how it works, the problems it’s had, and where patients and policymakers stand. What has your experience been with New Mexico’s medical marijuana system? Have you used marijuana to treat an illness, or had trouble applying for a prescription? We want to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call in during the show.
