The groups, ProgressNow New Mexico and Drug Policy Action, said the signatures they submit this afternoon will allow City Clerk Yolanda Vigil to start the verification process.

    Still waiting for someone to tell me what will happen if the Santa Fe County Sheriff or New Mexico State Police stop and arrest a person within the City Limits. Would this City ordinance trump Stste Statute? What about federal law enforcement?

    If it is true that the ordinance would trump statute, I have a list of other things I would like the city to legalize.
