CARSON CITY– The Nevada Tax Commission voted to extend the existing emergency situation regulations enabling leisure cannabis licensing and sales for another 120 days.
The Nevada Appeal reports long-term policies, which were set to end Wednesday, are still waiting for legislative approval.
In accordance with the Supreme Court order released Oct. 20, the policies, which were extended Wednesday, state that new applications to disperse pot can only be issued to certified alcohol wholesalers.
That requirement makes recreational marijuana use legal in Nevada, offering liquor suppliers special rights to circulation for the very first 18 months of recreational sales.
However the guidelines also adopt the high court’s consentaneous order existing distribution licenses to recreational licensees on or before Sept. 14 will remain in impact for the full year from the date they were provided.
