    Moved from Colorado and am in mmj shock. I figured I'd have no problem getting a card and although I knew there were few dispensaries here, I assumed that I'd be able to buy both herb and clones without issues. Ah, but I was so spoiled in Colorado.

    First of all, I have discovered that eye doctors here are very resistant to diagnosing the glaucoma I've been treated for the last 15 years. Instead, they diagnose high inter-ocular pressure, give me the drops and tell me to have my pressure checked 4 times a year. The norm is once yearly but it's hard for me to control the pressure, which is why I'd used mmj in addition to the drops.

    Then I read the NM threads here and I'm stumped. I live in LC about a mile from a dispensary and, if I'm understanding things right, I place an order and they deliver it to me? You mean they drive up to my door and my neighbors see I'm getting mmj? I must be mistaken. Please?

    Then I sign up with someone else to get clones?

    Colorado was never this restrictive before recreational was approved. I'm ready to follow the laws but these practices are kinda scaring me. Can someone either talk me down or confirm?

    Guess not.

    Some dispensaries offer delivery. There may be some that are delivery only. Just gotta call, though I'm sure you've figured it out by now. Very different here but loosening up slowly over time.

    I'm a newby and am looking for a forum for NM patients but this one seems sparsely used.

    Albuquerque I guess..Also I saw they seem to be restrictive on growing.
    If you
    rent or lease the property
    , check this box
    a letter signed
    by the property owner
    landlord that
    says you have
    permission to grow cannabis on the premises..This is crazy

    i don't know much about the grow scene there.

    abq would obviously have best options for public transit. and it's still fairly cheap in some areas of town. some have really bad gang problems
    santa fe is really pretty but really expensive.

    los cruces is almost in texas, close to el paso and gets really hot.

    Thank you for the insight...Saw the rent in Abq were low,heat i don't have a problem with..Just seems like it's so restrictive....Also looking at Washington State...Spokane is very reasonable rent wise..Not as many of restrictions as NM.....

    if you want cheap and don't mind hot, check out pueblo, colorado. if it's 2 adults in the house, you can have 6 plants in flower which is more than plenty. just fly under the radar and you'll never be bothered.

    I'm originally from So Cal. moved to Co and Now find myself in Albuq. I love NM for the most part except the MMJ program blows! You shouldn't have to be dying to benefit from the medicinal properties of MJ. I can't even get an appointment with a primary physician till mid september. I suffer from peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain, now I'm being told that they cannot accept my previous Dr. diagnosis and I have to got through all the testing all over again before I can apply for a Medical Card.

    I was able to get in to see my primary care early, he just checked my medical records from Cali and said ok! so I was finally able to get my medical card (actually just arrived today.) now ive got to see if my apartment complex allows for grow (probably not). im thankful i can at least go to the dispensary tomorrow, i refuse to take the dr. prescribed meds! they give no relief and fuck the side effects!

    How long did it take? Where did you go and what dispensary do you recommend? Congratulations on getting it.
