RSVP to Weekly Alibi’s New Mexico Cannabis Expo
Since New Mexico legalized medical cannabis back in 2007, the Earth has circled the Sun a dozen times. Amid those revolutions, the sociocultural acceptance of using cannabis and derived cannabinoids—think THC, CBD and CBN—as legitimate medication has gained significant ground here in The Land of Enchantment. And, with the 2018 US Farm Bill’s passage, the licensed cultivation of hemp in New Mexico is now ostensibly legal.
Dating back to at least the 18th century, the cultural impact of comic art in the United States is undeniable. Founding father Ben Franklin’s darkly humorous 1754 “Join, or Die” comic is, after all, remembered as the first cartoon published in an American newspaper. The alt-weekly has long offered its readers incisive, strange, deadpan and riotously funny comic strips while providing cartoonists with access to a historically receptive audience.

Marijuana rides a wave to the mainstream
The cannabis industry is riding a tremendous wave that rolls onward and swells upward, propelled forward by the remarkable successes of those states brave enough to start the ripple. The benefits universally reaped in legalized states are forcing even the most stubborn skeptics of legalization to reconsider their stance in the face of what has become a true force of nature.
