Legalizing
recreational
marijuana
is
one
of
New
Mexico
Gov.
Michelle
Lujan
Grisham’s

legislative
goals
for
2020
,
a
move
she
contends
would
be
a
huge
economic
boon
for
the
state.

After
adult-use
legalization

stalled
in
New
Mexico’s
Legislature

in
2019,
Grisham,
a
supporter
of
the
bipartisan
effort,
vowed
to
revive
legalization
this
year.

Grisham,
a
Democrat,
posted
on
her
state
website
that
her
plans
for
legalizing
recreational
cannabis
in
New
Mexico
would
include:

  • Establishing
    a
    regulatory
    framework
    for
    its
    use.
  • Public
    safety
    considerations.
  • Public
    health
    safeguards.
  • Protecting
    the
    state’s
    existing
    medical
    marijuana
    program.

Grisham
said
that
legalizing
recreational
marijuana
is
supported
by
75%
of
New
Mexicans,
according
to
a
recent
poll.

The
governor
said
that
legalizing
MJ
is
projected
to
create
11,000
jobs
and
New
Mexico
and
would
generate
hundreds
of
millions
of
dollars
in
revenue.
