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.
