State Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto, D-Albuquerque, wears a face shield while chatting with then-Rep. Linda Trujillo, D-Santa Fe, on the House floor last year. Trujillo is now superintendent of the state’s Regulation and Licensing Department, which has less than a year to set up the state’s legal cannabis market.

Linda Trujillo warned her youngest son about the evils of getting caught with marijuana when he went off to college.

It could ruin his ability to get student loans, she cautioned.

Worse, Trujillo told him, it could destroy his career, including his plans to go to law school.
