CITY COMMISSION MEETS TO DISCUSS FUTURE MARIJUANA POLICIES IN CLOVIS

The Clovis City Commission and Planning & Zoning Commission will hold a joint study session at 5:15 p.m., Wednesday, June 30 in the North Annex, Clovis-Carver Library. This will be a discussion regarding local jurisdiction rules and policies relating to legalized adult use of cannabis in Clovis, NM.

As of Tuesday June 29th, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has announced that the Cannabis Regulation Act she signed back in April, possession and growth of adult-use cannabis is no longer illegal in New Mexico. Licenses and adult-use sales are to come in the near future.

With the new law in effect, New Mexico now allows for possession of up to 2 ounces of and personal production of no more than six mature and six immature marijuana plants per adult. While this law legalizes the possession of marijuana, the deadline for beginning commercial sales is not until April 2022, to give state officials time to craft rules that will govern the cannabis industry and begin issuing licenses for legal pot production and sales.

The City and Planning and Zoning Commission meeting is open to the public and will also be available to watch virtually on the City of Clovis Facebook page. Please contact the City Manager’s office if you have any questions.
