We all remember how the marijuana issue was resolved in Arizona with Prop205, which was rejected 52-48% with only Pima and Coconino counties voting in favor of it, but just what has happened to Nevada on that same issue?
Nevada state officials declared a state of emergency after stores that sell recreational marijuana reported that their supply is running out just less than two weeks after the drug went on sale legally. What that means is that Nevada’s Department of Taxation is now thinking about new measures and reforming regulations that would permit liquor wholesalers to cash in on the marijuana sales.
They are reporting that … “Based on reports of adult-use marijuana sales already far exceeding the industry’s expectations at the state’s 47 licensed retail marijuana stores and the reality that many stores are running out of inventory”. Just what the heck did they think was going to happen??? Duh.
In November, after the law legalizing marijuana in Nevada was passed, liquor distributors were promised that they would have the sole rights of moving the drug for 18 months, but that was the juke & jive typical of progressives. These dispensaries that were originally allowed to retail medical marijuana can now sell recreational marijuana as well and, by law, must be given the drug from a licensed distributor. But many of the facilities have been left with a diminishing supply, and many distributors never got their license, and all this is a result of an unforeseen demand.
Unless the issue with distributor licensing is resolved quickly those living in Nevada will no longer see the product, and will result in many of these people losing their jobs and will bring this market to a “cascading failure”.
Thank you Arizonians for not being … S T U P I D.
