New Mexico Governor Vetoes Hemp Farming Bill

The Daily Chronic
“By vetoing the Industrial Hemp Farming Act, Governor Martinez has chosen to ignore the will of a super majority of state lawmakers and has done a disservice to the state,” said Jessica Gelay, policy coordinator with the New Mexico office of the Drug Policy Alliance. “It’s a shame that New Mexico is not joining the twenty-two other states — including very conservative states like Utah, Kentucky and Tennessee — that have enacted legislation to legalize industrial hemp for research and development or commercial cultivation.”
