What is the deadline for local jurisdiction to start accepting applications from cannabis businesses?
grael

Is the power point presentation available as a download?
esalazar
01:25:39
I was wondering the same thing
Vicki Reyes - City of Clovis
01:26:04
It would definitely help so that we can share with our commissioners
Katherine Harrison-Rogers
01:26:20
Do we have the authority to apply additional regulations to personal cultivation such as requiring inspections or that the cultivation be fully enclosed?
Erik Garcia
01:26:53
He said you can purchaseWhere can some one purchase here in NM legally?
Linda Calhoun
01:29:57
Can we require them to comply with current sign ordinances.
City Attorney Scott Aaron
01:30:00
Are municipalities prohibited from requiring premises or consumption areas to be 300 feet from churches?
Shannon

Jessica Lawlis, DPS Design
01:31:05

What about parks, baseball fields ,etc? consuming marijana out in the open is this ok?? what if other people do not want to be smelling this .
Matthew Saenz City of Las Cruces
01:34:42
Is there any discussion for additional local options taxation in the future?
JOCELYN GARRISON
01:36:55
Do all municipalities have a zero tolerance policy that receive federal funding (and therefore can prohibit any use by employees, not just impairment at work)?
City of Aztec
01:37:23
As municipalities, can still require preemployment drug testing for all positions ?
NMML Immediate Past Pres Cynthia Ann Bettison
01:37:42
Will ghe Cannabis Control Act impact an existing ordinance prohibiting smoking (of tobacco, cannabis, or any product) in Town-owned parks, open spaces, and trails?
NMML Immediate Past Pres Cynthia Ann Bettison
01:37:51
*the
Michelle Jones
01:38:53
I still think there should be ordinances available that we can review and adopt. I think its going to be very confusing if we are all doing our own thing.
esalazar
01:39:03
can you give an example when it states cannabis cannot be COMPLETELY prohibited. What CAN be prohibited?
Mary Berglund
01:39:41
If an employee has a spouse that has a medical card and the employee tests positive, is there any action that can be taken? Is it only performance based? What will become of the pre-employment drug screen policy?
City of Deming
01:42:26
If we have establishments that have a current business license to operate a retail business to sell CBD, is this going to suffice for your requirement of their business license? If so, this may be an issue for us because the City of Deming requires a Special Use Permit to operate a cannabis dispensary. We may not be notified if our CBD retailers obtain State permission unless it's handled similar to the liquor license process.
Scott Berry - City Manager
01:42:35
Does the excise tax apply to cultivation facility or manufacturing?

susan
01:50:06
Sorry meant drinking
Katherine Harrison-Rogers
01:50:07
Can local jurisdictions require a separate cannabis permit in addition to a business registration? What about special events like a festival (similar to off-site dispensers licenses for alcohol)
Michelle Jones
01:50:16
Liquor is sold at convenience stores- they just have to show id
Mark A. Evanko
01:51:16
Can the various ordinances from the many communities be placed onto a common link?
michelle barreras
01:52:30
We have a business already selling CBD and cannabis accessory items. What would that business need from our City to apply for a State license, as they already a business.
Tawnya Mortensen Town of Edgewood

Jessica Lawlis, DPS Design
02:09:21
Can you provide links to any applicable resources that are available through NMML
Stuart Murray
02:10:33
Given the short time to put ordinances in place, the ordinance may not be given the vetting needed to insure mistakes are not made. What ability will a community have to enforce changes in the future.
Linda Calhoun
02:13:32
Can we prohibit retail sales in historic or tourist districts?
lholguin

susan
02:21:12
But aren’t they different than other businesses—more like alcohol use??
Tawnya Mortensen Town of Edgewood
02:21:14
So really, we can't regulate time, place or manner
kdicome
02:21:36
The city of Albuqueruqe just passed a moratorium in Old Town. This should be watched in case it is challenged.
Tawnya Mortensen Town of Edgewood
02:22:26
We can only regulate how close it is to a school or daycare is what I'm hearing.
Katherine Harrison-Rogers
02:22:32
what about additional buffers such as a certain distance from residential zones or distance from other cannabis businesses?
kdicome
02:22:39
COA is until July 2022 or until IDO updates.
susan
02:22:53
And isn’t a special use permit requirement problematic and open to legal challenge because it treats the marijuana business differently?
Julie Kulhan
02:24:13
Can they sell the Hemp?
Shannon
02:24:26
Can we limit to sales to just General Commercial zoned areas and manufactured and production to specific zoned areas?
Louis Jaramillo-Chaves County P & Z Director
02:24:46
Is NM CID is looking at new regulations that include structures used for cannabis?
City of Deming
02:25:10
I thought the prior answer was yes on the governmental entity.
edwardv
02:25:22
Linda, has RLD made a determination as to the production of cannabis (the growing) whether outdoors or indoors considered agricultural?
roseann.peralta
02:25:58
Can a municipality impose an additional local tax?
Gayle Jones, Village of Bosque Farms
02:26:04
We have a section in our existing commercial zoning ordinance for "regulated" business. We have included vaping establishments, recycling establishments, etc. Medical marijuana was addressed under this section. We have now removed the word medical from this section. We are planning on addressing cannabis sales under this ordinance. Will this work?
Michelle Jones
02:28:09
I am interested in the answer to Gayle's question from Bosque Farms.
Consensus Planning
02:28:11
Sending the link to the map with establishment locations would be very helpful, thank you
City Attorney Scott Aaron
02:28:40
Can municipalities keep cannabis facilities 300 feet from churches?
Sonia Walker - Village of Los Lunas
02:31:23
If the existing medical businesses are soley retail, that doesn't mean they can move into growing and consumption without having to comply with new ordinances.
Sonia Walker - Village of Los Lunas
02:31:32
Is that correct?
kdicome
02:32:46
But no one (medical/rec/adult) can sell until the licenses are ready to be issued by the state RLD, correct?
Michelle Jones
02:34:40
Wont it be confusing (again) if the County Ordinance is very different from a municipality or a neighbor municipality ?
Michelle Jones
02:35:50
Imagine a County Deputy trying to respond to different municipalities who are only miles apart with very different rules and regs.
Michelle Jones
02:37:05
thats exactly what Im saying
Samantha J. Mendez
02:37:29
What is a reasonable limitation defined as regarding density for commercial cannabis?
Linda Calhoun
02:37:38
Am I missing something here, but it sounds like if we have to treat retail cannabis sales like any other business, then all we can regulate is density and distance from schools
kccass
02:43:04

Tim Dvorak, Town of Edgewood
02:43:50

Nathan Tompkins
02:45:03
Is the 300 ft as the crow flies or is it by roadways and walk ways?
City of Deming
02:45:14
With the tobacco licensing division, they have accepted a letter from us stating that the applicant has applied for a business and it is pending approval contingent upon state licensure; will this suffice to meet your local business license requirement?
Kori Taylor Town of Peralta
02:45:40
What is the step by step procedure to start up cannabis production.
Village of Ft Sumner
02:48:16
Can a Municipality institute a license fee for cannabis like liquor sales?
Julie Kulhan
02:48:27
Can we limit the hours of operation??
Shawn Jeffrey, Village of Cimarron
02:48:51
I might have missed this- How much will the cost of the license be to apply to the state and how much will entities charge?
JOCELYN GARRISON
02:48:59
If we have no restrictions on density other than adult stores/uses, can we restrict density of cannabis businesses (no alcohol density restrictions to compare them to)?
kdicome
02:49:34
Thanks Linda and NMML for all your work on this!!
Danny Bernal Jr. - Belen, Councilor
02:49:35

Grant Admin
02:50:37
Is the 300 ft from the property line to the schools or from the end of the building to the school?
Stuart Murray
02:51:18
Thanks, conversation has opened up avenues for ordinance to be addressed.
Samantha J. Mendez
02:51:58
Will you please repost the powerpoint in chat?
Angelica Gray
02:53:02
