A cannabis card allows the owner to use, possess and, in some cases, grow cannabis in states that have legalized marijuana as a form of medicine. There are states where cannabis can be recommended by licensed doctors for the alleviation of illness, chronic symptoms or certain ailments. Each of these states has its own laws regulating how medical marijuana can be prescribed, distributed, grown or used. Generally, a cannabis card gives the owner protection from prosecution by state law enforcement.
In the state of New Mexico, the bill that created the medical marijuana program was signed by Governor Bill Richardson in 2007. This bill allows for legal possession of marijuana for medical needs. The state further allows patients to grow their own cannabis, but they must apply for a production permit to grow it legally. If the patient is not able to pick up their own medicine from a New Mexico marijuana dispensary, the patient can designate a caregiver for aid in the endeavor. However, this caregiver also needs to apply for an ID.
New Mexico is believed to be one of the most accommodating states when it comes to medical marijuana. As a patient, you and your caregiver can collectively have an adequate supply of up to three months. This supply is defined by law as no more than 230 units of usable marijuana — a unit being 1 gram of dried flowers. If you need more than this, your doctor must indicate this in your prescription.
To be issued a legal medical marijuana card, a state certified doctor must verify that you indeed have an eligible condition and that the condition is debilitating and cannot be controlled by regular treatment. The doctor also must show that the benefits of the medicine outweigh the side effects. Your physician’s recommendations may need to be accompanied by further proof of the condition as well.
