State to weigh new medical pot rules

........................................................................................................................................................................................

SANTA FE – New Mexico health officials plan a June 16 hearing in Santa Fe on proposed new rules for the state’s medical marijuana program, including new limits on how many plants that producers and licensed patients could grow.

The Department of Health is proposing that producers could grow 150 mature plants and 300 seedlings. That would be up from the current total of 150. Meanwhile, patients would be allowed six plants, down from 12.

A department study has found that there’s more demand for legal medical marijuana than supply, and department spokesman Kenny Vigil says the changes are intended to increase the supply.
