Cannabis Health & Awareness

Safe Storage to Reduce Legal and Health-Related Risks

You have to be 21 to buy, use, or possess adult-use cannabis in New Mexico. Note: Cannabis is legal for those under 21 enrolled in the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program.

If you keep cannabis and cannabis products at your home, they should be stored safely, locked up, and out of reach of children and pets. Accidentally consuming edibles is a risk for children and pets that can result in cannabis toxicity or the need for emergency medical attention. If there is an accidental exposure to cannabis or cannabis products of any kind, call Poison Control Center (800) 222-1222 or visit your nearest emergency room if needed. Contact your vet immediately if your pet has ingested a cannabis-containing product.
