RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s marijuana regulators may have found a way around a judge’s order that threatens to block the state’s first recreational cannabis sales scheduled to begin next month.
Gov. Brian Sandoval has signed onto an emergency regulation intended to allow recreational sales to begin July 1 at some existing medical dispensaries.
Nevada Department of Taxation spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein says the agency plans to issue recreational retail licenses next week even if it doesn’t approve any distribution licenses caught up in a Carson City judge’s court order.
She told The Associated Press that under the emergency regulation, any legally licensed retailer that has inventory left over from the medical program would be allowed to sell the cannabis products for recreational use effective July 1.
That could include as many as 25 medical dispensaries in the Las Vegas-area and four in Reno.
