New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham believes Border Patrol agents are disrupting her state’s lucrative legal marijuana industry

In leaked audio released on Friday, New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham slammed Border Patrol agents for seizing drugs crossing the border into the US from Mexico. She claimed that the agents are imperilling the state’s legal marijuana industry by targeting legal shipments in the state.

“They’re saying that they’re worried about fentanyl, so they’re taking all of our cannabis. And they tried to detain people,” Gov. Grisham said in the recording, which lasts around two minutes. It’s not known where the recording was made, when or by whom.

The verdict on the leaked recording has been harsh. Here’s website Red State:

“It is incredibly tone-deaf to whine about the Biden administration, not for its horrible pro-illegal immigration policies, but for some rank-and-file agents doing what they swore to do, which is uphold the laws as they stand today. Lujan Grisham is more worried about facilitating drugs in her state than helping her residents, and that says a lot about her failed tenure as governor.”

According to Grisham, the “bad border patrol” is “taking a hard stance.”

The Governor goes on to suggest either an adjustment to the policy,  or “I have to send you a letter saying you are persecuting a state. You are not using your discretion. You are not working with me on immigration.”

She adds that she doesn’t “want to send that letter” but she feels “boxed in hard.”

Comments by US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas appear to have upset the Governor, particularly his claim that “they [i.e. the state of New Mexico] make a lot of money” from legal marijuana sales. Grisham hit back by saying that New Mexico is the only state that lets in “baby producers”—small-scale growers of marijuana—and that they are particularly vulnerable to drug seizures.

“Their business goes belly up.”

Legal marijuana is a boom industry in New Mexico. Last month, state officials celebrated more than $1 billion in total sales since the launch of legal sales in the state. The first licensed sales took place on April 1 2022.

Governor Grisham has voiced her support for the legalisation of other drugs, including psilocybin, one of the active ingredients in magic mushrooms.
