Patient enrollment in New Mexico’s medical marijuana program grew at a fast clip in April.

The New Mexico Department of Health says patient enrollment in the cannabis program for health ailments such as cancer, chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder increased by 1,632 to 72,375 in April. That’s the equivalent of a 28% annual growth rate.

New Mexico’s largest medical marijuana seller said Monday that statewide growth in medical cannabis sales trailed far behind enrollment gains between March 2018 and March 2019.

Albuquerque-based Ultra Health says annual medical marijuana sales grew by 16%. That’s less than half the 39% growth rate for enrollment.

State limits on medical marijuana production are currently under review. Ultra Health wants the state to increase purchase limits for patients and allow discounts by volume.
