The Division of Cannabis Control in New Mexico recorded a sale of $475,000 of non-medical marijuana for adult use and $180,000 of medical marijuana, all this in just a few hours from the opening of the registered and authorized businesses to sell the plant.

“People turned out in great numbers to show their support for the high-quality New Mexico products coming to them for the first time. The Cannabis Control Division is excited for everyone consumers and all the businesses that have been part of this historic day”, commented Heather Brewer, spokeswoman for the CCD (acronym in English), published by the Washington Examiner newspaper.

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham made a surprise appearance at the Everest Cannabis Company in uptown Albuquerque to verify the movement generated by the sale of the product, which became a total success.
