“I’m excited to see what the future holds as we continue to develop an innovative and safe adult-use cannabis industry.”

Regulation and Licensing Department Superintendent Linda Trujillo, added: “From the governor’s signing of the legislation, to standing up the Cannabis Control Division and rolling out this new industry, the New Mexico cannabis industry has shown great promise.

“We’re looking forward to even more growth in year two.”
