SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's medical marijuana advisory board had to cancel a May meeting to consider recommending program changes because it lacked enough members.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board hasn't had a full roster of members for years and that its membership recently dropped to two members, one short of the three needed for a quorum.

The canceled May meeting was one of two the panel holds annually to consider possible changes such as adding new health conditions that allow patients to qualify to use medical marijuana.

The Health Department said it was working with the New Mexico Medical Society to recruit new members and reviewing applications for three vacancies.

The department said it anticipates the board will meet again in early summer.
