SANTA FE — A proposal heading to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham would prohibit out-of-state residents from participating in New Mexico’s medical marijuana program.
The legislation, Senate Bill 139, won House approval 44-19. It passed the Senate last week.
Supporters of the bill said it would “fix” a change in state law enacted last year that opened the door for Texas residents and others who live outside New Mexico to get medical marijuana ID cards if they meet qualifying criteria.
