Medical marijuana patient numbers in Colorado decline for fifth month in a row

From October to November 2011, the registry lost more than 8,000 patients, according to statistics released yesterday by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The number of patients on the registry is now roughly 48,000 lower than its peak enrollment of 128,698 in June 2011. The decline to 80,558 patients shows that more than half of the 161,483 patients who have registered with the program since 2001 have not renewed their cards.

The majority of patients (46,723 or 58 percent) still designate someone as their primary caregiver, although the total number of caregivers seems to have shrunk as well from October to November. Other demographic statistics stayed generally the same. Some of the decline can be attributed to patients denied renewal applications for seeing physician assistants instead of doctors.
