You can easily engrave on glass with most CO2 lasers, but the lower power CO2 lasers cannot cut through glass.  For actual cutting you are looking at 1 kilowatt and above in terms of power (see https://www.rofin.com/en/products/co2-laser/slab-lasers/dc-series/).

If you need to cut glass, rather than engrave on it, you can get a nice glass cutting toolkit inexpensively.
