SANTA FE  — The New Mexico Department of Health has approved six more medical marijuana producers.

That makes 11 nonprofits licensed by the state to provide the drug. The first producer was approved in March 2009.

Health Secretary Alfredo Vigil said the additional producers will help meet the needs of patients by making medical marijuana more accessible in all regions of the state.

“We will continue to evaluate the program to ensure patients’ needs are being met without creating an excess supply of medical cannabis in New Mexico,” he said.

The six new producers are located in Harding, Dona Ana, Lea, Catron, Cibola and Bernalillo counties. There were already producers in Bernalillo, Santa Fe and Cibola counties.

The Health Department says New Mexico has more than 1,900 medical marijuana patients.

 The Department of Health will provide patients with contact information for the newly licensed nonprofit producers in approximately six weeks. This will give the nonprofits time to set up their production facilities and get ready to respond to patient inquiries.
