ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A proposed set of new rules for New Mexico’s medical marijuana program is drawing criticism.
According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the state’s Health Department is scheduled to hold a public hearing Monday on the possible changes.
However, a legislative panel has asked the department to delay adopting any of them until more feedback can be obtained.
The overhaul could include lowering the number of plants a patient can grow.
Growers say the new rules would be too costly to undertake and drive up prices.
Officials say more than 11,000 patients are currently enrolled in the program.
