In the six years since New Mexico legalized medical marijuana, Dr. Nicholas Nardacci has cleared more than 1,000 patients to use it — a tenth of all the patients certified across the state in that period — for conditions ranging from cancer to multiple sclerosis to post-traumatic stress disorder.
He even uses it himself to treat chronic back pain.
