Correction: In our publication regarding marijauna legislation in New Mexico we said Steve Pearce is majority leader for the Democratic party in New Mexico. This is factually incorrect as Steve Pearce is a former representative from New Mexico's 2nd congressional district. Steve Pearce is also a member of the Republican party and currently holds no form of elected office.
There are 20 days left in this year's 60-day legislative session, and Senate lawmakers have four proposals to consider. The bill is the first to get a Senate hearing and is the first of its kind in New Mexico history.
