ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - One of New Mexico’s licensed marijuana producers is under fire after a YouTube music video featured the facility’s marijuana as a backdrop.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2bZatL3 ) that a Sept. 1 letter from the state’s Medical Cannabis Program asks New Mexico Top Organics - Ultra Health how hip-hop artist Versatile Verse managed to get inside the facility and what benefit the video offers to qualified patients or the program.

Ultra Health LLC President and CEO Duke Rodriquez says this isn’t the first video they’ve had filmed in the facility but it is the first time the Department of Health has balked.

The facility was featured in the video for Versatile Verse’s song “New Mexico,” which has gained more than 3,500 views on YouTube.
