NEW MEXICO MOVES TO BAN MARIJUANA


State Finds Many Children Are Addicted to Weed -- Narcotics Law Passed.


Special Correspondence, The New York Times

SANTA FE. -- With the passage of 151 new statutes, the twelfth assembly of the New Mexico Legislature adjourned sine die.

Comparatively free from political horseplay, the Legislature was particularly distinguished for its handling of some twenty measures that were sadly needed.

Among these was the enactment of a uniform narcotics law and a companion measure aimed at those dealing in marijuana. The latter, if strictly enforced, should stamp out the trade in this kind of hashish.

Marijuana and its use have been spreading rapidly in recent years. Not being classified as a narcotic, under the Federal laws, its control has been left to local officials, whose efforts have been generally impotent.
