New Mexico Gov. Martinez Allows Medical Marijuana to Fund Itself…

Her bill would is in a addition to an already existing law which permitted marijuana to be used for select medicinal purposes such as Migraine Headaches, Chronic Back Pain, Movement Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Radiation, Therapy, Chemotherapy, Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, Arthritis, and HIV-AIDS.
New Mexico Gov. Martinez, who had been a district attorney for twenty five years, spent half her lifetime fighting the “Good” fight against drugs. She won the office as governor of New Mexico following after there had been established a law enabling marijuana cultivation for use for choose medicinal reasons. Now Martinez has signed Senate Bill 240, developing a growing medical cannabis fund to pay for the program’s costs.

“This means those of New Mexico’s citizens who objected for their money going toward the medicinal marijuana program should worry no more.
