SANTA FE – A task force established by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to study marijuana legalization is raising money to pay for polling on the issue.
The group held a small fundraising event at the Downs racetrack last week during the State Fair in Albuquerque.
Pat Davis, an Albuquerque city councilor and chairman of the cannabis legalization working group, said about 10 to 20 people attended the event, including people interested in marijuana legalization or involved in cannabis production.
Donations at the fundraiser went to the Angelica Foundation, a nonprofit group that provides grants for progressive causes. The foundation, in turn, will pay for the polling.
