New Mexico’s Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to remove cannabis from the state’s list of Schedule 1 controlled substances.

The move, which was introduced by Senator Cisco McSorley, came as an amendment to a synthetic cannabinoids ban bill - Senate Bill 127.

The proposal would designate over 100 synthetic cannabinoids as Schedule I substances; supporters of the amendment argued that cannabis doesn’t belong on Schedule 1 along with dangerous, chemical alternatives. The vote came along party lines, with no Republican voting in favor.

The bill now moves to the Senate.

  1. NM Senate bill 127 started waaaay back in 2010, and has morphed into something different each year. It seems to never get any action until the end of the legislative session, and then the session ends and it’s tabled until the next year. A hopelessly endless cycle. Lets hope for the best, next year. The session is over and it won’t go to the NM Senate for a vote until 2015, unless they freaking change it again.

  2. Exactly, it doesnt make sense. That’s one of the reasons that I, as a long time republican, am leaning more toward Libertarian. But lets be honest all political parties suck.

  3. Colorado is now saying they’re going to sell over a billion in cannabis in 2014 and the government is already making a budget to spend it. . Not sure why other state are taking so long to legalize cannabis but I hope by 2016 all state will have legalize cannabis. If not then “Just say yes, grow your own”!

  4. Interesting. Since there is enough information about cannabis to create and pass the right kinds of laws, it is now obvious that anyone opposing these measures has formed their opinions without considering science or facts. Hmm… What does that leave?

  5. Do you think that could make them change their minds about cannabis? Because if so, and you’re offering, um…

  6. I am confused. Republicans are supposed to believe in less government intervention in individual’s lives, yet all of them voted against this bill. Maybe by “individuals” they really mean “corporations?”
