On Sept 22, 2022 the City of Las Cruces Economic Development Department will host a public discussion regarding outdoor cannabis consumption areas.
City ordinances currently restrict consuming cannabis to indoor areas, including within licensed cannabis consumption areas. Most local jurisdictions have followed the same model and restricted outdoor consumption. Now, four months following the end of prohibition on cannabis, city of Las Cruces leaders are reconsidering how and why they restrict cannabis consumption.
Residents and local businesses are invited to engage in this meeting and may attend in person or virtually. Residents are also being encouraged to complete a survey to help city staff collect data on the subject.
