New Mexico Bill to Legalize Marijuana Passes House Committee

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, February, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

A New Mexico Bill to Legalize Marijuana passed the House Committee moving the issue forward in a state that shares its borders with Arizona and Colorado, both states that have successful marijuana policies. As many of our readers know, 8 states have legalized marijuana. During the 2016 election in November, the people of California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada voted to make marijauna legal for adult use, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska.

According to KRWG, a public media outlet for Southern New Mexico, a bill to legalize, tax, and safely regulate marijuana passed the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee by a vote of 3 to 1. House Bill 89 (HB 89) would open New Mexico to the $35 billion marijuana industry and create a major new stream of revenue for our ailing economy. The revenue from this act would fund public schools, substance abuse programs, public safety, and the public defenders office. The act would legalize the social use of marijuana for adults aged 21 or over.
