Santa Fe City Council Approves Cannabis Regulations

The Santa Fe City Council voted unanimously Wednesday night to adopt local regulations on cannabis production and sales, which the state recently legalized for recreational use.

The new state law prevents local jurisdictions from being overly restrictive on commercial cannabis businesses and personal use of the substance. They are allowed to determine the size of production spaces and the distance between cannabis facilities and schools, churches and other establishments.

“This is an exciting new industry our city is going to flourish from,” Councilor Michael Garcia said.

The City Council added a 300-foot distance requirement between cannabis businesses and places of worship, similar to the buffer between cannabis businesses and schools and day care centers.
