The similarities regarding marijuana mostly ended there at a televised Wednesday-night debate between Republican Congressman Steve Pearce and Democratic Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham.

Pearce says he does not support state approval of recreational marijuana because it can put an obstacle before people who are struggling to get out of poverty. He says people in Raton near the Colorado state line have witnessed problems caused by the authorization of recreational use in that state.

Michelle Lujan Grisham says she would support legislation for recreational use in New Mexico only if it addresses workplace intoxication, prevents underage use and ensures adequate supplies for medical cannabis patients.

Pearce and Lujan Grisham both voiced support for the state's medical marijuana program.
