On April 2, 2007, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson signed the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, legalizing medical marijuana in the treatment of certain "eligible conditions and symptoms." Eligible conditions include chronic or debilitating diseases such as cancer, AIDS and glaucoma. The New Mexico Department of Health later established regulations for licensing, production and distribution, to be monitored by a panel of eight health care professionals.
