New Mexico Governor Calls for Marijuana Legalization to Assist with COVID-19 Budget Loss

Description (Dublin Core)

In a publicized Covid-19 update, the New Mexico state governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham briefly discussed the possibility of the legalization of cannabis. Grisham believes that the taxation and revenue from the legalization would benefit New Mexico’s economy. In the live briefing, Grisham states that New Mexico needs to “look for innovative ways to increase economic activity”. She discusses how the revenue will not fix the entire problem, but it is a way to help fill the “Medicaid gaps”. New Mexico has lost revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and this might be a way to create new revenue and jobs.
