Nevada Emergency- Dispensaries Running Out of Cannabis After Just 10 Days!

Officials in Nevada say that less than two weeks after recreational marijuana hit store shelves, many businesses are now running out of the legal drug.

Brian Sandoval (R) endorsed the department's call for a "statement of emergency" on Friday, which would allow for more licensed distributors, The Reno-Gazette Journal reported.

Customers buy cannabis products at Essence Vegas Cannabis Dispensary after the start of recreational marijuana sales began on July 1, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nevada has almost 50 legal dispensaries to sell pot, but stores don't have the authority to resupply their inventories of marijuana when it runs out - which it did.

The Department of Taxation estimates that the sale of marijuana will bring in about $100 million to the state this fiscal year. "A halt in this market will lead to a hole in the state's school budget", the agency said. That must be done by alcohol wholesalers, which were given exclusive rights to distribute marijuana as a compromise to a liquor industry that was anxious pot sales would cut into profits.

Marijuana sales have been legal in Nevada for just over one week and already the stores can't keep up with the demand.

Nevada is the only state with legalized marijuana that has such an arrangement. Medical marijuana distributors now can not provide recreational marijuana to dispensaries, but if the emergency regulation is adopted, Segerblom said, that will be "fixed in a second".

"We continue to work with the liquor wholesalers who have applied for distribution licenses, but most don't yet meet the requirements that would allow us to license them". Now they await the outcome of a hearing this Thursday, July 13, when the Department of Taxation will consider, and surely adopt, emergency regulations meant to open the food chain. "People are there when we open [at 10 a.m.] and they're there when we close [at midnight]", one owner of a dispensary said.

When the news emerged of a possible state of emergency on Friday, the Department hadn't yet granted extra distribution licenses.

Their industry group, the Independent Alcohol Distributors of Nevada, sued the tax department to block other businesses from participating. Several establishments told state officials they expected to run out in the coming days.

The statement also estimated that "well over" 40,000 transactions were made during opening weekend of legalized recreational marijuana sales.
