New Mexico’s Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to remove cannabis from the state’s list of Schedule 1 controlled substances.

The move, which was introduced by Senator Cisco McSorley, came as an amendment to a synthetic cannabinoids ban bill - Senate Bill 127.

The proposal would designate over 100 synthetic cannabinoids as Schedule I substances; supporters of the amendment argued that cannabis doesn’t belong on Schedule 1 along with dangerous, chemical alternatives. The vote came along party lines, with no Republican voting in favor.

The bill now moves to the Senate.
