      Editor’s note: Not since the Legislature approved racinos and Indian gambling in the mid-1990s has New Mexico faced the kind of sweeping social change and economic impact that would come with legalizing recreational marijuana. Proponents laud its economic potential and “social justice” tenets, while opponents lament that it would only add to the state’s problems. The Journal today begins a five-part series on what is likely to be a heated debate in Santa Fe.

      I have a feeling this could come to reality. Now, we have a Dem governor who could support this, but I’m not totally sure. I guess time will tell.

      Steve Pearce and she was more supportive of it than she was in the past. Being a Good Hillbot, she always said she needed “more time to study the issue”. Cornered in the debates, she acknowleged the Very Obvious financial benefits and dog knows, NewMexico could use some revenue. The legislature is still unfortunately inhabited by many third-way Democrats and they may spell disaster for legalization.

      One of the stunning parts of one debate was when Pearce (R) related a story about a close friend on cannabis for medical reasons that caused him to reverse his position on pot. I hope we will get the votes and it will pass but am with you, Snort, I would not put a wager on it.

      Consider it up voted.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      States that legalized have not seen a dramatic increase in much of anything. The police are upset because they lose their pot seizures. Other than that, it’s gone pretty well. Now that Canada is legal, it’s only a matter of time until most US states legalize. Not the southern states, of course. They know reefer leads young people to engage in degenerate Negro jive dancing and other things.

      He used to be the NM governor, so I’m guessing he’s still a resident. And he’s been involved in the legal cannabis industry for a while now (presumably operating out of Colorado, since it’s a neighboring state and they have been legal there for several years now)

      As for the Hillbot governor, she should call her buddy Frackenlooper and ask him about it. He was completely opposed to legalization in Colorado…. until it passed and the money started rolling in. That changed his mind really quick.

      I think I read in the same story that some state legislators were more interested in seeing this through. But we will find out soon enough.
