New Mexico gov’s commission eyeing adult-use cannabis legalization



A bipartisan group appointed by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to study legalizing recreational marijuana is moving forward with two public policy meetings this month.

The group was scheduled to meet in Albuquerque Wednesday to hear from officials from the state’s existing healthcare cannabis plan and from marijuana licensing professionals.

A second meeting is scheduled in Las Cruces on Aug. 28.

Here’s some background:

  • Legalization advocates such as the Marijuana Policy Project view New Mexico as 1 of the far more promising states to legalize recreational marijuana in the subsequent couple of years.
  • Grisham, a Democrat, has mentioned she supports adult-use legalization, as extended as public security is ensured.
  • Legislation to authorize and tax recreational marijuana sales at state-run retailers passed the state Home this year, but stalled in the Senate.
  • The governor’s committee of state leaders and regional regulators  currently toured 5 healthcare cannabis dispensaries to find out far more about the business, according to KOAT, an Albuquerque Television station.
  • New Mexico commission members also are slated to pay a visit to Colorado to meet with state regulators in that state.
