As New Mexico makes ready for the sale of recreational marijuana, approved by Gov. Lujan Grisham and NM lawmakers, regulations are still being worked out at the state level and some cannabis producers are taking advantage of loopholes.
Aside from cost, there is no limit to the number of producer licenses companies can receive. According to the Albuquerque Journal, “Ultra Health is embarking on a $20 million expansion to maintain its status as the state’s largest cannabis operation, citing guidance from state officials that companies may purchase multiple producer licenses to cover a single facility.”
NMBC has been outspoken against legalization of recreational marijuana in NM, which is to start no later than April 2022. New Mexico has so many more important issues that need our attention. Our state is dead last in school performance, high crime rates place fear in our citizens, we have a huge homeless population, and our businesses have been devastated due to the extended shut down by Gov. Lujan Grisham.
NMBC will continue the hard work of helping businesses reopen, supporting our police, fixing our schools, and creating an environment where we end homelessness.
