SANTA FE — Lawmakers can expect to take up a proposal next year to make New Mexico the 11th state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said she will add the issue to the agenda of the 2020 legislative session.
It’s a 30-day session, so the governor has some power to set the agenda.
A bipartisan proposal to legalize recreational cannabis through state-run stores narrowly won House approval this year but stalled in the Senate.
