Rolling Stone looks at N.M. medical marijuana bill -- Santa Fe New Mexican

Rolling Stone magazine last week published an article featuring a medical marijuana bill that passed the Legislature and is awaiting Gov. Susana Martinez's signature.

The story, headlined "How Medical Marijuana Could Help End the Opioid Epidemic," deals with House Bill 527, sponsored by House Minority Leader Nate Gentry, R-Albuquerque. The bill would set into law the medical conditions that make a patient eligible to obtain medical marijuana in New Mexico. These conditions are now listed in rules issued by the state Health Department. But in addition, it also would add opioid addiction to that list of qualifying conditions. -- 4/3/2017
