Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham
I was deeply proud to sign this bill into law because I know it will open up so many opportunities for New Mexico. Opportunities for workers and entrepreneurs to build prosperous careers. Opportunities to generate more revenue for state and local governments. And opportunities to mend the harm done by the failed war on drugs – which has taken a disproportionate toll on communities of color.
This is the kind of change I’m dreaming of when I talk about building a brighter future for New Mexico – a win-win that allows both individuals and communities to thrive. Together, we’ll keep fighting to make our bold agenda a reality. This session, we’ve proven that it’s possible.
If you search around the Web, no doubt you’ll find the occasional nod to the new law here in New Mexico. We’re all proud of the law and the governor who got it through the Roundhouse. I’ve already rec’d happy notes from friends back East who are ready to visit at the drop of a joint.
Funny thing is … I haven’t smoked ANYTHING since about 1960. Decided it wasn’t a healthy habit and quit. Probably got a bit of a contact high now and then the years I was singing. I really haven’t yet researched quite how I might introduce some flavor or other of New Mexico Home Grown into my daily calorie intake.
Probably try a brownie recipe or something like that … some Friday, my bread-baking day. 🙂
