Santa Fe, N.M. – The New Mexico Department of Health is being sued by a medical marijuana producer and a mother who uses oil derived from cannabis to control her infant daughter’s seizures.
The lawsuit filed this week challenges the state’s limit on the number of plants a licensed producer may grow. The complaint alleges the limit is keeping some patients from getting what they need.
Duke Rodriguez is head of New Mexico Top Organics-Ultra Health Inc., the producer that’s suing. He says state regulations should reflect patient needs and be supported by a credible assessment of supply and demand.
Patients enrolled in New Mexico’s program have increased rapidly from about 14,000 in 2015 to more than 26,000 as of this summer.
The state last year raised the plant limit from 150 to 450.
