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.
