There are now 21 qualifying conditions for the medical cannabis program in New Mexico, (revised 5-21-2015). Check back frequently, as new conditions are added as presented by the NM Medical Cannabis Advisory Board and approved by the NM Secretary of Health. This list started out with only 7 qualifying conditions, and although this list should include ANY condition for which a doctor believes marijuana would be a benefit to their patient, we are grateful for what we have.
