New Mexico lawmakers will take another stab at legalizing recreational marijuana during what is expected to be a brief but fast-paced special session that will begin Tuesday.

Marijuana won’t be the only issue on the agenda.

Lawmakers also will consider expanding the Local Economic Development Act, according to the office of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who announced Friday she will call the New Mexico Legislature into a special session March 30 “to take up a pair of economic and job creation items that were left unfinished in the 60-day session.”
