Cannabis Legalization Meetings

Cannabis Legalization Meetings

After being tasked by New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to study proposals that could legalize cannabis, Sheriff Kim Stewart has launched a series of public input meetings to gauge the opinions of Doña Ana County residents.
 
Sheriff Stewart was among a 20-member group named last week to the governor’s Cannabis Legalization Working Group. According to the governor’s office, the committee will make recommendations based off of public input and various other proposals. 

The governor’s office expects the recommendations to be part of cannabis legislation that will be introduced during the next legislative session.
