It’s been less than a week since Nevada started selling recreational marijuana and the state’s dispensaries are already running out.
With lines out the door from the moment the new law went into effect early Sunday morning, the state’s 47 dispensaries are struggling to keep up with the demand, according to the Reno-Gazette Journal.
The Nevada Dispensary Association estimates there has already been as much as $3 million in marijuana sales, which would amount to about $1 million in tax revenue for the state, according to the Reno-Gazette Journal.
Supply is starting to run so low that the state’s government is now considering “emergency regulations” that will fast-track the approval process for more distributors. State law requires all sellers to obtain supply from licensed distributors.
I’m not sure if this is a good look for the legalization of weed or a bad look but it’s certainly a look. Recreational weed has been legal in Nevada for a blink and the state is in emergency regulations. Supply and demand at it’s finest.
This either goes to show that the government could be making boats of money if they legalized weed across the country or this shows that people are fiends for drugs and maybe we should slow down on the legalization thing.
Either way, there are officially no rules in Las Vegas. It’s basically West World over there and I’m booking a plane ticket asap.[1. JK, I never leave New York and you can’t make me.]
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think weed will be legal everywhere soon. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
