2011 New Mexico Statutes
Chapter 30: Criminal Offenses
Article 31: Controlled Substances, 30-31-1 through 30-31-41
Section 30-31-13: Registrations.
A. The board shall register an applicant to manufacture or distribute controlled substances unless it determines that the issuance of that registration would be inconsistent with the public interest. In determining the public interest, the board shall consider the following factors:
(1) maintenance of effective controls against diversion of controlled substances into other than legitimate medical, scientific or industrial channels;
(2) compliance with applicable state and local law;
(3) any convictions of the applicant under any federal or state laws relating to any controlled substance;
(4) past experience in the manufacture or distribution of controlled substances, and the existence in the applicant's establishment of effective controls against diversion;
(5) furnishing by the applicant of false or fraudulent material in any application filed under the Controlled Substances Act;
(6) suspension or revocation of the applicant's federal registration to manufacture, distribute or dispense controlled substances as authorized by federal law; and
(7) any other factors relevant to and consistent with the public health and safety.
B. Registration under this section does not entitle a registrant to manufacture and distribute controlled substances in Schedules I or II other than those allowed in the registration.
C. Compliance by manufacturers and distributors with the provisions of the federal Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 respecting registration, excluding state registration fees entitles them to be registered under the Controlled Substances Act .
D. Practitioners must be registered to dispense any controlled substances or to conduct research with controlled substances in Schedules II through V if they are authorized to dispense or conduct research under Section 39 [30-31-40 NMSA 1978] of the Controlled Substances Act. The board need not require separate registration under this act for practitioners engaging in research with nonnarcotic controlled substances in Schedules II through V where the registrant is already registered under the Controlled Substances Act in another capacity. Practitioners or scientific investigators registered under the federal Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 to conduct research with Schedule I substances may conduct research with Schedule I substances within this state upon furnishing the board evidence of that federal registration.
