I've heard that marijuana is actually quite beneficial for treating cachexia associated with AIDS or chemotherapy. I'm just wondering how NM plans to keep the weed for medical use only, given that it would probably be grown on large plots.SANTA FE, N.M. - New Mexico has a new medical marijuana law with a twist: It requires the state to grow its own.
The law, effective Sunday, not only protects medical marijuana users from prosecution — as 11 other states do — but requires New Mexico to oversee a production and distribution system for the drug.
The state Department of Health must issue rules by Oct. 1 for the licensing of marijuana producers and in-state, secured facilities, and for developing a distribution system.
