Can I get an MMJ Card for my child in New Mexico?

Minors under 18 can qualify for a New Mexico medical marijuana card with consent from a parent or legal guardian who will serve as their caregiver.

An online consultation with a Leafwell healthcare provider costs $99. You will not be charged if your child is not approved.

Information for minor applicants:

  • Patients and caregivers must have different email addresses. If your child does not have an email account, one will need to be created to complete the state application.
  • If not the parent of the minor, guardianship documentation will need to be provided.
  • The birth certificate is required for the patient application; a driver’s license or state-issued identification will be required for the caregiver application.
  • The Parental/Guardianship Consent Form will need to be completed, in addition to signing the application.
  • Parents can sign on the minor’s behalf.
