New medical marijuana regulations stir debate

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New regulations for the medical marijuana program in New Mexico are sparking debate.

Friday, local lawmakers and former Governor Gary Johnson gathered at the Sheraton Uptown for a press conference to discuss issues with the program

The Department of Health has confirmed that there is a shortage of medical cannabis available and has agreed to let licensed growers increase the number of plants they can grow. However these new regulations have been stalled by what officials at the meeting Friday called non-essential rules surrounding the medical marijuana program.

It’s unclear at this point, how quickly these issues can be resolved.
