The governor of New Mexico seems poised to sign a bill to legalize marijuana first thing next week, with a sponsor of the reform legislation telling Marijuana Moment that she’s received a “save the date” notice for what appears to be a signing ceremony on Monday. The legislature sent Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) an adult-use legalization proposal late last month after approving it in a special session that she convened specifically to finalize the reform. Advocates have been eagerly awaiting its signing, though there are procedural reasons it has not yet happened. Rep. Andrea Romero (D), a sponsor of the reform bill, told Marijuana Moment on Friday that the governor’s office reached out to her and other lawmakers recently and told them to keep their schedules open on Monday.
