Distance Requirements: TBD. Final regulatory and licensure will be centrally controlled by a new Cannabis Control Division. Unlike most other states, New Mexico will not allow municipalities to ban cannabis businesses in their cities. Municipalities could, however, use their local zoning authority to limit the number of retailers or their distance from schools, daycares or other cannabis businesses.

Caps: There are no set limits for the number of licenses that will be issued, however regulators could stop issuing new licenses if an advisory committee determines that “market equilibrium is deficient.

Tax Rate:

  • Medical marijuana: Dispensaries are required to pay a gross receipts tax, which varies across the state from 5.125% to 8.8125%
  • Adult use: Marijuana sales are subject to the “cannabis excise tax,” which begins at 12% and is supposed to increase to 18% by July 1, 2030.
