The west is owed a lot of the thanks for the initial push to get medical marijuana recognized as a fair entity. CA made history when it legalized medical marijuana in 1996. In 1998, OR, AK, and Washington followed and then Nevada legalized it in 2000. Short of AK, those are all states in the western half the country within the lower 48. I’m cheerful to see that the movement of marijuana legalization has reached both shores, however I still know the west should be held in high regard over the argument to end cannabis prohibition. NM was another 1 of the initial states to legalize medical marijuana when it passed a law signed by former Governor Bill Richardson in 2007. I moved to Albuquerque in 2009 and 1 of the first things I did was get a medical marijuana card as a new resident of NM. It was $30 every year to register myself with the state as a medical marijuana patient in Albuquerque. The people I was with and I only had a few medical cannabis dispensaries back then, with a few in Los Volcanes, Downtown, and Nob Hill. Now that NM has legalized cannabis for recreational use as well, I no longer have to pay the money to the state for a medical marijuana card or any money to a cannabis nurse to keep getting our recommendation for dispensary weed. It’s a lot nicer having a wider selection of dispensaries these afternoons as well, especially throughout Albuquerque and the rest of Bernalillo County. You can find weed for numerous different budgets, especially if you want top shelf, cultivar-quality cannabis.
