SANTA FE, N.M. (KVII) — Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday announced her support for a measure to legalize recreational cannabis in New Mexico for adults at age 21 and up, an economic development driver that would create thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions in revenue for needed public services all across the state. Legalization would generate an estimated 11,000 new jobs in agriculture, manufacturing, regulation and retail, where sales would reach $620 million by the fifth year, according to an independent analyst. A mature medical/adult-use cannabis industry would generate some $100 million in annual revenue for state and local governments. “The Legislature has the opportunity to pass the largest job-creation program in New Mexico in a decade,” Gov.
