Ultra Health, one of New Mexico’s largest medical cannabis producers, is currently suing the state’s Department of Health over its new medical cannabis regulations. According to a Santa Fe New Mexican report, the company filed the lawsuit on July 10, after the state published its new regulations on June 23. The lawsuit focuses on the state’s new rules on testing and labeling requirements, hemp, and the department’s criteria for suspending and revoking producers’ licenses. Ultra Health argues that the Department of Health “simply copied and pasted regulations from other states without considering how those out of state regulations would or could perform in the real world in New Mexico,”. Furthermore, Ultra Health is asking the district judge to request the department repeal and rewrite several of the rules.
