The Verdes Foundation, which has stores in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque, expects the market to grow five times as much as it does now. You are already preparing for new customers.

“We are expanding everything from our cultivation facilities to our manufacturing and our throughput in making products from cannabis. We are also adding new pharmacies and increasing our staff in our pharmacies,” said Speegle.

Speegle hopes lawmakers will pay particular attention to safety, regulating home growth, and engaging industry leaders in making decisions related to legislation.
