QUESTION: What piece of legislation currently in the New Mexico Senate would save our state over $33 million while gaining $20 million in tax revenue?

ANSWER: SJR 10, a constitutional amendment that would allow for the legalization, taxation, and regulation of marijuana in New Mexico.

to Tell our New Mexico Senators to Pass SJR10 and let the people decide about legal marijuana in New Mexico.

Here’s how it would work: If passed by both the House and Senate during this legislative session, Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino’s SJR 10 would appear on the ballot in next November’s election where voters would then decide whether or not they want legal, taxed, and regulated marijuana in New Mexico.
FACT INFACT

This is an issue of direct democracy and exercising the will of the people.

Our legislators should give their constituents the opportunity to engage in direct democracy and let New Mexico voters decide whether or not they want to end the extraordinarily harmful effects of marijuana prohibition.

The New Mexico Constitution is not a static document; it was meant to be periodically changed in order to better reflect the current time. Colorado and Washington both recently passed legislation to fully legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana and all the empirical polling evidence shows a wide majority of people support marijuana legalization.
