ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — According to the state’s Cannabis Control Division, New Mexico saw double the usual daily cannabis sales on 4/20.

“Legal cannabis sales have brought 4/20 out of the shadows and into the mainstream of our state’s economy,” said Kristen Thomson, Cannabis Control Division director. “New Mexicans celebrated responsibly yesterday and came out in strong numbers to celebrate and enjoy high-quality New Mexico products.”
