Applications are now open for businesses interested in becoming legal marijuana producers licensed by the state of New Mexico. A day after the state released finalized rules for cannabis producers, the Cannabis Control Division announced on Wednesday that interested parties can now use an online application portal to get the process started. “We are open for business,” Regulation and Licensing Department Superintendent Linda Trujillo said in a press release. “Effective today, businesses and entrepreneurs can use our streamlined online system to submit their application to become a producer in New Mexico’s growing cannabis industry.” Regulators touted the modernization of the application process, as prospective producers in the state’s existing medical cannabis program previously needed to fill out multiple paper forms to apply. “The Cannabis Control Division is committed to standing up the adult-use cannabis industry and maintaining our nationally recognized medical cannabis program in ways that support businesses, consumers and communities,” Trujillo said.
