Nevada's Pot Problem has State on High Alert

16 July 2017

But that changed when recreational sales began July 1 and anyone transporting pot was required to obtain a distribution license. The state faces problems with growing cycles and crop shortages making things hard for the distributors, too, but that's a story for another time. According to the Nevada Tax Commission, most liquor wholesalers don't meet the licensing requirements to sell weed.

"The current law is you have to be a liquor distributor to transport marijuana and none of those people have licenses", Segerblom said.

Department officials point out marijuana business owners have invested huge amounts of money to build facilities in Nevada, hiring and training thousands of employees.

However, in light of the booming business at Nevada shops, the new emergency regulation, which has been endorsed by the governor, would allow others-shockingly, even folks who aren't already liquor distributors-to apply for licenses.

Gray lasted just two innings in Friday's loss, giving up eight runs on nine hits with just one strikeout and three walks. David Ortiz was gone, so someone needed to fill his ebuillent leadership role in the clubhouse and on the field.

Sandoval actually released a statement of emergency, requesting the regulation of the businesses that can obtain a recreational selling license be expanded. The ruling has since been appealed to the Nevada Supreme Court.

Following an overwhelming demand for recreational marijuana, Nevada regulators are considering emergency rules that would expedite licensing for pot distributors.

After less than two weeks of recreational sales of marijuana in Nevada, the state's dispensaries are pretty much out of product.
