NuggMD, the nation's largest medical marijuana telemedicine platform, has launched its industry-leading service in New Mexico, the 28th state the company serves. Since its founding in 2015, NuggMD has connected over one million patients to medical marijuana physicians throughout the United States.
New Mexico legalized cannabis for medical purposes in 2007 and for recreational use in 2021. In 2023, medical cannabis sales comprised nearly 26 percent of overall cannabis sales in the state, which totaled more than $50m. New Mexico taxes recreational cannabis at 12 percent, but that excise tax does not apply to the states medical sales.
Since the inception of legal cannabis programs, sales in New Mexico have totaled more than $915m, according to state data, pulling hundreds of millions of dollars out of the states black market for the substance and funneling it into legal businesses that create jobs and contribute to the regional economy.
Where consumers get their cannabis matters a lot, said Alex Milligan, NuggMD co-founder and CMO. In California, for instance, our investigation confirmed that the states black-market cannabis is laced with pesticides and other contaminants, and the potencies don't match the labels. Purchasing from regulated retailers is the only way for consumers to be sure theyre using safe cannabis thats honestly advertised.
It costs $99 to get a medical cannabis evaluation in New Mexico using NuggMD. The platform is available from 8 am to 10 pm seven days a week. No appointment is needed, and patients who don't qualify for their state's medical cannabis program won't be charged for their evaluation.
NuggMD is the nation's leading medical marijuana technology platform, serving patients in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. They've connected over 1,000,000 patients face-to-face with their new medical marijuana doctors via their state-of-the-art telemedicine platform. They believe every human being has the right to explore the benefits of medical cannabis and are fully committed to helping each patient explore every option in their journey to wellness.
