Yesterday, in a 36-34 vote, the New Mexico House of Representatives passed HB 356, which would legalize marijuana for adults. The bill is a product of a last-minute compromise and incorporates parts of the Republican-sponsored bill. It now heads to the Senate, where any vote is expected to be close. If enough New Mexicans reach out to their state senators, there is a chance the state will legalize marijuana this year!
Newly elected Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) campaigned on making marijuana legal and would likely sign the bill, if the Senate passes HB 356. Contact your lawmakers now and ask them to end marijuana prohibition. Then, share this message with other supporters of humane marijuana policy. Together we can bring smarter marijuana policy to New Mexico.
