Nevada Rejects Alcohol Distributors’ Cannabis Appeal

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s marijuana regulators have rejected an appeal by a group of alcohol distributors who wanted to block the state from licensing cannabis businesses to transport marijuana from growers to retail stores.

The state Tax Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to uphold the Tax Department’s earlier decision to expand the licensing to those other than liquor distributors because they have been unable to keep up with demand.

Tax Department spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein says it’s not clear how soon the new distribution licenses could be issued.
