INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENTS State by State New Mexico Adult-use marijuana sales launched April 1 and totaled more than $3.52 million during the first three days, according to figures the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department (NMRLD) provided to MJBizDaily. The NMRLD reported 57,890 transactions for adult-use marijuana during the three-day period and 29,883 medical marijuana transactions over the same time. The 2022 MJBiz Factbook projects annual adult-use cannabis sales worth as much as $125 million for New Mexico this year. New York State regulators approved the first round of recreational cannabis cultivation licenses, issuing 52 permits to local hemp farmers under a new law aimed at ensuring adequate marijuana supplies for the state's impending adult-use market. The permits are intended to accelerate the cultivation and processing of recreational marijuana to avoid lengthy delays and shortages. The licenses also are aimed at boosting diversity within the industry, with hemp farmers getting an early opportunity to enter the adult-use market. Companies that received the permits may start growing marijuana outdoors or in a greenhouse with up to 20 supplemental lights. Conditional license winners are required to apply for full permits by June 1. The provisional licenses expire June 30, 2024.
