Medible review new mexico lawmaker to try again on marijuana legalization initiative bill

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — New Mexico State Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino (D-Albuquerque) has been trying to legalize marijuana for several years now and is vowing to get back to work on it when the legislature convenes next month.

Ortiz y Pino has pre-filed a bill, Senate Joint Resolution 4, that would allow legalization to be put to a popular vote if approved by a two-thirds vote of the legislature.

This year, a similar bill died in committee, but Ortiz y Pino is undaunted.
