Marijuana legalization in New Mexico

Is marijuana legal in New Mexico?

Medical marijuana is legal in New Mexico. Recreational marijuana is not yet legal in New Mexico.

Medical marijuana has been legal in New Mexico since 2007. In 2019 marijuana was mostly decriminalized for personal possession.

Recreational marijuana is not yet legal in New Mexico, but local politicians were working to make it happen. A bill was ignored by the close of the 2020 session, so it will have to wait until 2021.
