A joint panel of New Mexico House and Senate lawmakers met on Tuesday to discuss the economic impact of legalizing marijuana. Although the legislature is not currently in session, the joint Interim Revenue Stabilization & Tax Policy Committee heard from financial experts about revenue projections for legal cannabis. Also, lawmakers took public testimony on the issue. Separate reports from the Tax Foundation, O’Donnell Economics & Strategy, and the Legislative Finance Committee on the potential fiscal implications were distributed for the meeting.
