New Mexico rejects proposal for drive-thru medical pot dispensary

A Whopper with fries, please. Oh, and an ounce of Bruce Banner. Wait, what?

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —- New Mexico medical marijuana patients in Albuquerque will not be cruising through to get their prescriptions as the state has rejected a proposal for a drive-thru dispensary.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that pot producer Organtica had planned to open a drive-thru this year to help serve post-traumatic stress disorder patients, who often say they are uncomfortable with crowds in retail stores.

The state Department of Health, however, ruled on Wednesday that a drive-thru would not be feasible due to safety concerns. Spokesman David Morgan says the department has not approved any requests for drive-up windows.
