You will need a smartphone, computer, or tablet with a reliable internet connection and a working camera to be seen by a Leafwell provider.
  2. Next, you will be taken to the virtual waiting room where you'll be connected Leafwell provider for a video chat (i.e., a virtual doctor's visit). (You will receive a text message to your cell phone when the provider is ready to see you.) During the video chat, the provider will assess your health situation to determine if you qualify for a medical marijuana certification.
  3. If you are approved for a medical marijuana card, you will receive an email from the state with 24 hours.  At that time, you can use a link found in the email to create an account with the New Mexico Department of Health Cannabis Program and complete the state side of the approval process.
