New Mexico to Reveal Names of MMJ Businesses, Employees

New Mexico’s medical marijuana dispensaries and their employees are about to feel the full weight of government transparency.

Gov. Susana Martinez has approved a policy change that will make the names of the state’s MMJ producers/dispensaries and their workers public information, according to the Albuquerque Journal. The move reverses a confidentiality clause in New Mexico’s medical marijuana law that kept those names secret.

The state previously provided a list of licensed dispensaries only to patients who received approval for medical cannabis cards, though some businesses advertise publicly.

The change is apparently in response to a lawsuit filed against the state that sought the disclosure of all the names.

Still, it’s not clear when those identities will be made available for public review because the governor has ordered the state Department of Health to rewrite its confidentiality rule for MMJ businesses. That could take some time.

There were 24 dispensaries operating in New Mexico in early 2015, according to the Marijuana Business Factbook.
