Nevada opens pot distribution to nonliquor wholesalers

Released Friday, Aug. 11, 2017|12:47 p.m.

Upgraded 4 hours, 59 minutes ago

CARSON CITY– Nevada cannabis regulators have actually chosen to begin releasing pot distribution licenses to businesses aside from liquor wholesalers to stay up to date with overwhelming need given that legal recreational sales started July 1.

The Nevada Department of Tax voted Thursday to open the marketplace formerly restricted to liquor suppliers under the state tally procedure citizens approved in November.

They will begin evaluating about 80 applications they got in May from other businesses, department spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein said.

Tax authorities formerly tried to open the distribution process to medical dispensaries, but liquor wholesalers argued in court that breached state law.

A Carson City judge agreed the wholesalers, saying the state had to develop official criteria to identify if there aren’t sufficient distributors to do the job.

With the backing of Gov. Brian Sandoval, the state tax commission approved an emergency situation regulation last month intended to meet the judge’s concerns.

Throughout Thursday’s three-hour public conference in Henderson, several individuals spoke in favor of an “broadened swimming pool” of recreational cannabis suppliers. Tax officials said they were concerned legal sellers might run out of marijuana products, which would cause clients going back to the illegal black market.

“I think the evidence is fairly clear today that this market needs to be opened up,” said Deonne Contine, executive director of the tax department. “The capability of only alcohol wholesalers to serve the market appears lacking.”

The department stated the need for the emergency situation guidelines quickly after cannabis sellers taped more than 40,000 transactions in the first weekend of legal sales. A few of the dispensaries that previously sold pot for medical use said they saw their sales increase 10-fold.

“Without the capability to accredit cannabis suppliers to continue the flow of item to the retailer, a high possibility exists that customers will revert to the black market,” Contine informed the tax commission in July.
