New Mexico Senate Bill 523 allows for the legal possession, use, growing, and distribution of medical marijuana within New Mexico. Patients who obtain a state issued medical marijuana ID card may legally posses up to six (6) ounces of usable medical cannabis at any one time, use medical marijuana legally in their private residence, and obtain New Mexico cannabis from a certified primary caregiver. New Mexico medical marijuana patients may also, legally, grow up to sixteen (16) medical cannabis plants in their own private residence. Under S.B. 523, of the sixteen (16) plants allowed for legal cultivation, only four (4) may be mature and flowering, and twelve (12) seedlings. New Mexico medical marijuana patients may not sell medical cannabis to other medical marijuana patients, unless serving as a designated primary caregiver to a state licensed patient. A medical marijuana license does not guarantee immunity from workplace restriction on the use of medical marijuana; or housing restriction on the possession, growing, or use of medical cannabis. Driving under the influence of cannabis is prohibited under New Mexico S.B. 523. New Mexico does not share reciprocity with other medical marijuana states. Potential New Mexico medical cannabis patients should consult with a physician, or medical cannabis registration company, to determine qualification to use medical marijuana in New Mexico.
