NM MMJ Producer Application Requirements as of 1/26/10
    #358500 - 02/06/10 04:52 PM (6 years, 9 months ago)

This is kind of interesting.  Remember that chapter in DMT the spirit molecule where he talks about all the red tape involved with getting the study off the ground?  This reminds me of that chapter.

Quote:



General Requirements:  A facility that qualifies to produce and distribute cannabis for medical use is limited to a combined total of ninety-five (95) mature plants and seedlings and an inventory of usable medical cannabis that reflects current qualified patient needs.  The non-profit will sell medical cannabis at a consistent unit price and without volume discounts.  Only non-profit organizations are eligible for licensure.

Application Requirements:  All applicants must develop and submit policies and procedures to produce and distribute medical cannabis.  The applicants, if licensed, would be required to maintain these policies and procedures on the premises. At a minimum, the application must include the criteria starting on page 2 of this document.  These pages should be used as the index for the application and must be completely filled out, including the page numbers where each item starts.

Sending an application to the Department of Health is in no way a guarantee that the applicant will receive a license.  The number of licenses issued to non-profit entities is at the discretion of the Secretary of the Department of Health and will be based upon assessment of the needs of qualified patients and the safety of the public. There is no specific time-line currently for the process of licensing non-profit producers.






Quote:

The application must include the following list as an index page and must include each of the specified items, in the order identified below.  This list must be completely filled out, and must identify the starting page of the application for each item.

 Pg. #____ Payment of non-refundable fee of $100. Please include a check or money order payable to the New Mexico Department of Health Medical Cannabis Program with your application.

 Pg. #____ Proof of non-profit status pursuant to NMSA 1978, Section 53-8-1 et seq..
