Judge's Order Could Delay Recreational Pot Sales
Nevada’s planned July 1 rollout of recreational marijuana sales could be in jeopardy.
A district court judge signed an order Tuesday prohibiting the Department of Taxation from issuing marijuana distribution licenses under the recently adopted regulations.
The order comes after the Independent Alcohol Distributors of Nevada filed a complaint, arguing the ballot initiative that legalized recreational marijuana actually states that marijuana distribution licenses can only go to licensed liquor wholesalers for the first 18 months of sale.
T he Las Vegas Review-Journal reportsthat the group's intention isn’t to delay sales but to gain their rightful place.
