SANTA FE (AP) - The state medical marijuana advisory board's chairman is leaving office after not being reappointed by Gov. Susana Martinez's administration.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Dr. Steve Jenison was instrumental in establishing New Mexico's medical marijuana program.
Health Secretary Retta Ward told Jenison in a letter that he will no longer be part of the board.
Health Department spokesman Kenny Vigil declined to elaborate on why Jension isn't being reappointed.
Jenison says the decision may be stem from his efforts to ensure compliance with rules and to press for timely decisions on requests to add medical conditions allowing medical marijuana use.
New Mexico Drug Policy Alliance Executive Kaltenbach says Jenison has done a good job and that she's sorry he's not being reappointed.
