There’s a reason why New Mexico legalized recreational cannabis, evidenced by the massive amount of sales the state has seen in its first month since prohibition ended. (It’s only been a little over six weeks—seems longer!)Dispensaries in Santa Fe are raking in customers while the state racks up tax dollars. The Cannabis Control Division announced that during the first month of adult-use sales, retailers sold almost $40 million in both recreation and medical cannabis. Santa Fe had the third-most cannabis sales of any New Mexico city in its first month of legalized recreational use. The city saw $1.8 million in adult-use sales, compared to $1.6 million in medical sales, totaling around $3.6 million—topped only by Albuquerque and Las Cruces. Albuquerque led the market with more than $14 million in total sales.Among those sales are receipts from Sacred Garden, which resolved its dispute with state regulators earlier this month after missing out on the first few weeks of sales.
