New Mexico Cannabis Control Division orders Speak Easy NM to stop 'gifting' weed to customers

This story was updated Wednesday to include Speak Easy's reopening and response to the state's order.

LAS CRUCES - A local business that was "gifting" small amounts of cannabis to customers who made purchases announced Wednesday it will comply with a cease and desist order from New Mexico's Cannabis Control Division.

 Speak Easy NM, located at El Paseo Road and E.

Idaho Avenue, held its official grand opening July 17, according to its Facebook page, which describes the store as an "organics company and gift shop.

" Attorney Matt Madrid — who represents the business — told the Sun-News on Tuesday the owners were temporarily closed while evaluating their legal options.

  On Wednesday, he announced the business would reopen "in full compliance" with the state's order.

More: Marijuana became legal in New Mexico on June 29.

Here's what you can and can't do.

"The practice commonly referred to as 'gifting' will not occur on our premises, however we are still able to assist the community with CBD products and merchandise," Madrid wrote in a news release.

 According to the July 27 cease and desist order, Speak Easy was distributing cannabis or cannabis products as gifts to customers who purchased other items.

It demanded that the business cease that activity, but did not levy any penalties or order a halt to other business operations.
