New Mexico’s Medical Board is proposing new rules for doctors who certify patients for the state’s medical marijuana program.

The board says the changes would remind doctors and providers to use the same protocols to prescribe narcotic pain relievers when certifying someone for medical marijuana.

The board says this is an effort to clear the confusion of the provider’s role in the process.

Critics argue it is not the same.

They say since medical marijuana is not FDA approved they cannot prescribe Marijuana.

There will be a public hearing on the new rules at the medical board office in Santa Fe on August 16 at 9 a.m.
