First of all Ms. Wooten, you haven't been "Forced to break the law". It's perfectly legal for you to get your medication where you always have, from your schwag-selling, mexican marijuana-importing, cartel-killer sociopathic criminal neighborhood dealer if you choose to do so. It is legal in NM for you to use that source. Do so at your own peril. They can and will sell you whatever they have, sprayed with whatever they have and grown in whatever they have. Your medication will be inconsistent and un-tested. It will not meet any organic or therapeutic standards whatsoever...but it is your choice. The danger is not a legal one for you. It is a quality and personal danger issue for you.
Secondly, there is no logic to your saying that you "haven't been able to find one close-by" and that you "heard of one in Alamogordo". The fact is that "hearing" about one is ridiculous. When you received your cards, you received a complete list of the qualified Producers. Most deliver throughout the State.
Geography. If you live in Las Cruces you'll go through the Nazi Checkpoint at Alamogordo NORTHBOUND only. You can cruise home with your meds no problem because there is no SOUTHBOUND stop. So you can go right up to Ruidoso where there is a perfectly wonderful dispensary, get some of the best medication in NM and putt home to 'Cruches with no fear.
You need to get off your duff and get to work for yourself. There are plenty of Patients in NM that understand the Program (you obviously don't) and that take the initiative to secure their medication. Many of these people are very ill, some more than you, and they fully accept and welcome their role in this aspect of their healthcare.
Regarding the lawsuit and those prospective Producers...one of the prospectives, Veggies Inc., has been telling his clientele that he is a Qualified Producer for several years. VEGGIES INC IS NOT A QUALIFIED NM CANNABIS PRODUCER!!!! PERIOD! They told Physicians in Carlsbad they were State qualified and encouraged Doctors to send them Patients. They lied and have been lying for years. I for one hope they face immense scrutiny from the State. The current Qualified Producers are honest, hard-working and went through all the steps to become legal, qualified Producers. There is most likely a good reason why those in the lawsuit have been, for the most part, denied.
Get over yourself Ms. Wooten. It is not the job of the State of NM or the Medical Cannabis Program to deliver medication to your door. The State provides safe access by allowing 23 qualified Producers (two did not renew) to Produce medication. There are a number of ways to get that medication.
Do some homework and stop whining!

Nothing to take the edge of the brain's stressed out speed

Grow your own, but beware. If you go to VA, you might get in trouble. I did not renew my permit for fear of Gov. reprisals. Peace.
