Marijuana shortage: Nevada considers emergency measures

Marijuana Okies!

State officials in Nevada are considering emergency measures to deal with a lack of marijuana.

Demand has been strong since recreational use was legalised on 1 July.

There are plenty of outlets but not enough distributors, the Reno Gazette-Journal reports.

Legislation gave liquor wholesalers the right to distribute, but most do not meet the licence requirements, Nevada’s tax department is quoted as saying.

The department issued a “statement of emergency”, which means state officials could adopt emergency measures to combat the shortage.
