With a total area of 314,900 km², it is the fifth-largest and sixth least densely populated of the 50 states. Its capital and cultural center is Santa Fe, while its largest city is Albuquerque.

Interview with Governor Gary Johnson, by Gary Johnson, Drug War Chronicle, 13 Oct 2000
Discusses Johnson's stand on legalizing heroin and marijuana (and why he chose not to delve on the former), the impact he had in New Mexico by raising the issues and what he planned to do after he left office (climb Mt. Everest)
"I've come to recognize that there are a lot of things that can be done at the state level. Here in New Mexico, I set up a drug advisory council with judges, medical people, law enforcement people, and treatment people. They will make their recommendations in December. ... I believe there will be a number of specific recommendations that we can address through the legislative process."
