Growing At Home

New Mexicans can grow a limited amount of cannabis at their home for personal use.

If there are two or more adults 21 and over in a household, the limit is 24 plants with no more than 12 of them flowering at any one time.

Homegrown cannabis is intended exclusively for the use of the resident. State law prohibits the sale of cannabis or cannabis products by anyone not licensed to sell them. Cannabis also can’t be used to trade or barter for other goods or services.

Violators of the law are subject to a penalties ranging from a $50 fine to fourth degree felony charges.
