As of yesterday, New Mexico law not only permits the medical use of marijuana, but provides state oversight of medicinal pot's growth and distribution."The long-term goal is that the patients will have a safe, secure supply that doesn't mean drug dealers, that doesn't mean growing their own," said Reena Szczepanski, director of Drug Policy Alliance New Mexico.Officials in New Mexico -- the eleventh state to legalize medical marijuana, but the first to regulate its production -- are still trying to figure out whether health department employees could potentially face federal prosecution, as users do.
The state Department of Health must issue rules by Oct. 1 for the licensing of marijuana producers and in-state, secured facilities, and for developing a distribution system.
Among the conditions for which pot use is permitted are cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and HIV-AIDS. Patients in hospice care are also covered.
