How to Apply for a New Mexico Medical Marijuana Card

Step 1: Schedule an Appointment

The first step to getting your medical marijuana card with Dr.Weedy is to fill out the application form and book an appointment. Choose a time that suits you best and provide some basic medical history. This appointment will be with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who can approve any qualifying condition.

Step 2: Consult with Our Medical Marijuana Doctor

Once you’ve scheduled an appointment, the next step is to consult with one of our medical cannabis doctors. This consultation typically lasts between 10 to 15 minutes, offering you an opportunity to discuss your ailments and ask questions about medical marijuana treatment.

After your consultation, if the doctor approves, they will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana. It’s important to note that a provider’s actual signature is required on the second page of the application. With this in hand, you can apply to the state.

Step 3: Get Approved

After your appointment, the next stage is getting approved by the state. Once you’re approved by Dr. Weedy, you will need to register with the state and submit an application. The state will then process your application, notify you of your approval, and mail your card.

Advantages of Holding a Medical Card in New Mexico

While recreational cannabis use has been legalized in New Mexico since April 2022, obtaining a Medical Marijuana (MMJ) card still offers significant advantages. These benefits range from financial savings to protection against discrimination. 

Financial Benefits

One of the most tangible benefits of having an MMJ card in New Mexico is the potential for substantial savings. This is primarily due to the tax exemptions provided for medical cannabis products.

While recreational cannabis products are subject to a 12% Excise Tax, medical cannabis products aren’t. Depending on the product type and the dispensary you choose, as a medical patient, you may only pay a 5 to 8% tax. This difference in tax rates can add up to significant savings over time, making an MMJ card a wise investment for regular users.

Legal Protection

An MMJ card also offers legal protections against discrimination due to cannabis use. This is particularly important in a society where prejudices and misconceptions about cannabis use can still exist.

As an MMJ cardholder, you receive protection against discrimination from employers, landlords, and even family courts. This means you can use your medication without fear of negative consequences in these areas of life.

Caregivers in New Mexico

In New Mexico, medical cannabis patients can appoint a primary caregiver to oversee their treatment. A primary caregiver must be at least 18 years old and a resident of New Mexico. Their role is to manage the patient’s well-being concerning their medical cannabis treatment.

To become a caregiver, a completed and signed Primary Caregiver and Patient Information Form, filled out by the caregiver and the patient’s physician, is required. A valid New Mexico ID or Driver’s License must accompany the forms.

For cannabis patients under 18 years old, a registered primary caregiver is mandatory. These minor patients need to provide additional documentation, such as a birth certificate and parental consent form.

All completed applications should be sent to the New Mexico Department of Health’s Medical Cannabis Program. There is no application fee for caregivers.

Understanding Possession Limits in New Mexico

A patient is allowed up to 425 units, or 15 ounces, over a three-month period. New Mexico provides a detailed breakdown of these quantities based on product types, including chocolate bars, capsules, tincture oil, and wax. For dried flower purchases, a unit equals about a gram of product.

The medical cannabis units that you purchase are tracked every time you make a purchase at a dispensary. Units bought today will be subtracted from your total available unit count after 90 days, based on a rolling three-month period.

Obtaining a Personal Production License

If you wish to cultivate your own medical marijuana, you must apply for and receive approval for a PPL. Upon approval, you’ll receive a separate PPL card. This card expires annually, and you must submit a renewal application at least 30 days before it expires. 

As with your medical cannabis card application, it’s essential to include original documents with your PPL application, as photocopies aren’t accepted. These applications can either be mailed or submitted in person.


Effective from June 16, 2023, changes to New Mexico’s medical cannabis program extend the enrollment period to two years, eliminating the need for annual recertification. Existing ID cards remain valid until their expiration. A new card format is introduced, and patients should utilize the Online Patient Portal.
