ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Local advocacy groups continue the push to get medical cannabis in the classroom.
A week after KOB first reported on a 10-year-old boy who was unable to have his medical cannabis administered on school property, Safe Access New Mexico is spreading the message that New Mexico cannabis laws must be amended.
"The main purpose of our medical cannabis program law is to allow the beneficial use of medical cannabis so we're not seeing that happen," said Jason Barker with Safe Access New Mexico.
"We're trying to make sure as we come into the 2019 legislative session that lawmakers understand that we need to see a separate medical cannabis bill, making corrections there, and get those passed before talking about recreational use," he continued.
