Legislation introducing the legal and regulated use and sale of cannabis in New Mexico was passed with 39 votes to 31 on Friday evening. It is now being heard in the Senate. HB 12: The Cannabis Regulation Act legalizes and regulates the use, manufacture and sale of cannabis and cannabis products for adults aged 21 and over. The bill introduces a responsible, strictly regulated system that imposes an 8% excise tax on all cannabis sales and sets guidelines for licensing that prioritize diversity and equality of opportunity. Democrats who backed the bill said, “We have an opportunity to establish this new industry with a framework that emphasizes equity, diversity and public safety. It is time to move on.” Economic projections suggest recreational cannabis sales in New Mexico could be this high overall in the first year alone, up $ 318 million, creating over 11,000 new jobs. Estimated tax revenue is projected to be $ 28.6 million for the first year and stabilize at $ 50 million per year.
