A week after Nevada’s legalized marijuana sales began, the state is already facing a shortage of cannabis for adult use.
Measures are now being taken to address what the governor has endorsed as “a state of emergency,” allowing for more marijuana businesses to close the gap in demand.
“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, the Department must address the lack of distributors immediately. Some establishments report the need for delivery within the next several days,” said department Spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein.
