The Las Cruces City Council approved additional legislative priorities Tuesday, including supporting the legalization of cannabis and the need for additional early childhood education funding. In a 6-1 vote, the Las Cruces City Council approved a resolution advocating for the legalization of cannabis in New Mexico. The resolution of support will be sent to the state legislature, where City Policy Analyst Christopher Dunn says the legislation is expected to be introduced. “I reached out to many of the senators and representatives that have previously sponsored legislation in New Mexico, to try to understand what 2021 legislation might look like,” Dunn said. “And with that, I found out that Representative Javier Martínez and Senator Ivey-Soto are both expected to introduce bills in this legislative session.”
