The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) recently announced details of proposed rule changes for its Medical Cannabis Program (MCP) that, if adopted, will implement several important policy changes, including a new maximum limit of 1,750 plants for licensed non-profit producers (LNPPs) of medical cannabis.
The new plant limit replaces NMAC Rule Change – 2019 – MCP – Emergency Amendment enacted in March that adopted an emergency plant count rule of 2,500 plants for LNPPs while the NMDOH worked to obtain data for a permanent rule.
