Medical cannabis faces a challenge in the Roundhouse

Rep. James Smith (R-Sandia Park) has introduced a bill that would put an end to New Mexico's medical marijuana program.

Montana's considering a similar measure, because, as House Speaker Mike Milburn says, the state is "getting known for the wrong reasons."

Gov. Susana Martinez said during her campaign that she'd like to see the Lynn and Erin Compassionate Use Act repealed. Smith's measure was introduced in Santa Fe on Thursday. Looks like the bill is heading to the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee and the House Judiciary.
