January 19, 2020 by erfa5t8
New Mexico Guv Michelle Lujan Grisham contacted state lawmakers to legislate leisure cannabis throughout the 2020 legal session, which begins Jan 21.
” Supported by 75% of New Mexicans in a recent survey, the legalization of recreational marijuana is projected to produce 11,000 New Mexico tasks and generate hundreds of millions of dollars in earnings,” said Grisham, < a href=" https://www.forbes.com/sites/tomangell/2020/01/15/new-mexico-governor-calls-for-marijuana-legalization-in-2020/#19520bed287f" target="

Grisham stated she desires the Legislature to pass an expense “legalizing using leisure marijuana in New Mexico and developing a regulative structure for its usage, including public safety considerations, public health safeguards, and the security of the state’s existing medical marijuana program.”
Grisham also wants New Mexico’s medical cannabis program to be for in-state residents just and has actually asked lawmakers to develop such legislation despite a court’s current judgment that out-of-state patients can buy medical marijuana when in the state. Some Arizona clients have actually taken this chance. Last year, efforts to legislate adult-use marijuana passed in the New Mexico Home however not in the Senate.
