New Mexico’s medical marijuana program might get a major overhaul. One that would automatically permit all military veterans to qualify as medical marijuana patients.
The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the proposed bill this week, and now it advances to the full Senate, according to KOAT 7 News.
Other possible changes to the program are adding substance abuse disorder as a qualifying condition and making the making renewals every three years instead of annually.
One of the primary concerns of Senate bill sponsor Cisco McSorley of Albuquerque is helping veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
