And while other people have been going in hysterics over who may or may not be forced to bake a cake at a gay wedding, New Mexico has passed a first-in-the nation ban on civil forfeiture.  Hurray!!! It was unanimously passed by both houses of the Legislature, no less, and signed by the Governor.  It still allows forfeiture of property used in a crime, but only after conviction.  And the proceeds will go into the general fund, not the local police coffers.

I wish it had gotten even a fraction of the attention.
