US (NM): New limits on number of medical cannabis plants

Starting next week, New Mexico’s plant limit for licensed medical cannabis providers will be set at 1,750 mature plants – less than the current limit but far higher than in previous years – under a rule change adopted by state Health Secretary Kathy Kunkel.

However, the decision to forge ahead with the new plant limit immediately drew opposition from some medical cannabis producers who had argued it was too low to keep up with the program’s steady growth.

It also means that producers might have to destroy some mature cannabis plants, as a memo issued by the Department of Health on Thursday said the reduced plant limit will not be phased in.
