Campaign finance filings released Monday night show several contributions from the state's burgeoning medical cannabis sector to the congresswoman and candidate for governor since July 1, totaling more than $20,000.

Contributors include the Verdes Foundation nonprofit dispensary, Reynold Greenleaf & Associates cannabis industry consultants and medical cannabis home deliverer MJ Express-O.

Lujan Grisham was in charge of the New Mexico Health Department when the state's medical marijuana program began and has expressed support for approving recreational marijuana with adequate health and safety requirements.

Pearce has expressed reservations about recreational marijuana as New Mexico wrestles with poverty and addiction to other drugs.
