* New Mexico Update *

2007

On March 5th, 2007, the New Mexico House of Representatives passed House Memorial 49 by a landslide vote of 59-2. HM 49 requests the New Mexico State University Board of Regents to study the viability of industrial hemp farming in the state, and urges Congress "to recognize industrial hemp as a valuable agricultural commodity, to define industrial hemp in federal law as a non-psychoactive and genetically identifiable species of the genus Cannabis, and acknowledge that allowing and encouraging farmers to produce industrial hemp will improve the balance of trade by promoting domestic sources of industrial hemp and can make a positive contribution to the issues of global climate change and carbon sequestration."

As the overwhelming 59-2 vote shows, support for industrial hemp in New Mexico is virtually universal. Support is especially strong among farmers. The Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, representing New Mexico, along with Colorado and Wyoming, has a long-standing policy urging Congress and the USDA to research industrial hemp as an alternative crop.
