ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Possessing and growing cannabis becomes legal in New Mexico on June 29 but there are some limits. Even though people 21 years and older can have a certain amount of marijuana on them, they still won’t be able to buy it in stores until next year.

Micah Doering with the NMSP. “Drugged or alcohol-impaired drivers, our enforcement techniques are not going to change at all.”
