This week’s issue of The Paper. is all about greener horizons for New Mexico. The legalization of cannabis is expected to bring more than 11,000 new jobs and millions in new state and local revenue. Those are big numbers for the big picture, but for individuals wanting to start a business, work in one, or for employers trying to navigate the brave new world of legalization, lots of “how does that work, exactly?!” questions loom.

We wanted to know too, so we dispatched our reporters to find the answers. From the history of 4/20 to how you start your new cannabis business, we built the definitive guide to legalization.
