Donated Drugs

New Mexico doctors may soon be able to dispense drugs to their patients as a donation.

Legislation pending in the Senate is meant to help patients who can not afford expensive prescription medication.

Under the bill, a patient must be told the drugs are donated and then agree to accept them.

The Senate unanimously approved the legislation Tuesday and sent it to the House for consideration.
