Up in Smoke | 3.24.21

Legalizing recreational cannabis was the hot ticket item of the recent New Mexico legislative session, but the last ditch effort to get it done – House Bill 12 – went up in smoke. Now, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is calling for a special legislative session to once and for all address legalization head-on. In this episode of Growing Forward, our team sat down with Politico reporter Natalie Fertig to wrap up the session with her national perspective and with advocate Moises Gonzales to talk about what he wants to see added to future cannabis legislation.
