NM adds six new conditions for medical cannabis program


New Mexico’s medical marijuana program added six new qualifying conditions Thursday – including opioid addiction, Alzheimer’s disease and autism – in a move that will allow new treatment options under an already rapidly growing program.

The decision by state Health Secretary Kathy Kunkel to adopt the new qualifying conditions brings the total number of conditions for enrolling in New Mexico’s medical cannabis program to 28 and comes after former Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration rejected previous recommendations to allow those diagnosed with opioid use disorder to legally be prescribed marijuana.
