New Mexico, in 1978, became the first state in America to allow the use of medical cannabis, although strictly for research purposes. In July of 2007, though, the Lynn and Erin Compassionate Use Act was signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson. This made New Mexico the 12th state (there are now 20, plus the District of Columbia) to legalize medical cannabis. Patients enrolled in the program may legally possess up to six ounces of marijuana for personal medical use.
New Mexico’s Medical Cannabis Program is, compared to many other states, very strictly-controlled, and the only one that requires marijuana suppliers to be registered as non-profit entities. Entry into the program as a patient requires the presence of one or more of 17 eligible conditions, and the approval of a licensed medical practitioner.
That’s where we come in. Albuquerque Integrative Medicine (AIM) is a professional medical practice dedicated to helping qualified patients gain entry into the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program. We firmly believe that marijuana, cannabis, and hashish have significant medicinal properties, and have the scientific and medical research data to prove it.
If you or a loved one suffer from cancer, Crohn’s disease, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, epilepsy, chronic pain, or any of the other eligible conditions, relief may be just around the corner. Medical marijuana, cannabis, or hashish can help.
