Is a company trying to suck up our water and sell it back to us?
By Christie Chisholm
Maybe you’ve never heard of Datil, N.M. It’s just a tiny town in Catron Country, a two-and-a-half-hour drive southwest of Albuquerque. Besides the pretty scenery, it’s generally unremarkable. But for the last three years, it’s played host to a furious debate on water rights.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of the 2011 legislative session. It’s slated to adjourn on Saturday, March 19, at noon. The brunt of the work usually happens during the last hours, and lawmakers debate well into the final nights. Here’s what’s happened so far.
Performances from over 27 bands, a classic car and bike show, pin-up contest, a parade, beard and mustache competition, tiki pool party, tattoo contest, swing dance classes, Mr. Man competition and more.
Presentations from industry leaders, as well as exhibitors and vendors showcasing products and services. Vendors are licensed producers, dispensaries, nutrient companies, medical clinics, health and wellness providers and more.
