New Mexico Bill Would Legalize Recreational Marijuana and Industrial Hemp, Nullify Federal Prohibition

SANTA FE, N.M. (Jan. 17, 2016) – A bill prefiled in the New Mexico House would legalize marijuana for recreational use and the production of industrial hemp. Passage would not only legalize marijuana and hemp in the Land of Enchantment, but would also take a big step toward nullifying federal cannabis prohibition in practice in the state.
