New Mexico isn’t wasting any time setting up its adult-use marijuana market, with regulators launching a website to provide information about the state’s impending new cannabis policy before the governor has even signed a legalization bill into law. Lawmakers sent legislation to establish recreational marijuana to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) last week during a special session that she had convened. Under the proposal, retail sales wouldn’t start until April 2022, but the state Regulation and Licensing Department is getting a head start providing information to consumers and businesses. The new website features a timeline for when the Cannabis Control Division (CCD) would have to create an advisory board, when business licenses would begin to be issued and when the retail market is expected to launch. It also provides an overview of the fees associated with various license types.
