The Cannabis Control Division was created in 2021 when Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed the Cannabis Regulation Act into law. A division of the Regulation and Licensing Department, the Cannabis Control Division was initially tasked with promulgating rules for licensing cannabis establishments, cannabis testing, advertising and marketing, packaging and labeling, compliance, promoting social equity, training and education.
