Default Nevada Declares State of Emergency, Out of Marijuana!

Who would have thought you would ever see a headline like this? When I was a kid in the 60's, my parents always dreamed about and talked about one day you would be able to go into a store and buy pot, I'm sorry they never lived to see that...old hippies, they were, fought for legalization back in the 70's. They would have loved this headline...

Nevada Marijuana Supply Running Low, State of Emergency Declared, Governor Says...
Quote:
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.

Gov. Brian Sandoval, R-Nev., issued the state of emergency on Friday, which will allow state officials to decide on new rules that could ease the shortage of marijuana, according to Fox 13 Now.

Nevada’s Department of Taxation released a statement that said it will contemplate emergency regulations that would permit liquor wholesalers to cash in on the marijuana sales.

“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,” the Department of Taxation said in a statement. “Some establishments report the need for delivery within the next several days.”

"The business owners in this industry have invested hundreds of millions of dollars to build facilities across the state," the Department of Taxation's statement continued. “They have hired and trained thousands of additional employees to meet the demands of the market. Unless the issue with distributor licensing is resolved quickly, the inability to deliver product to retail stores will result in many of these people losing their jobs and will bring this nascent market to a grinding halt."

Nevada voters approved to legalize recreational pot in November. The state joined Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Alaska in allowing adults to buy the drug that is banned by the federal government.

To buy, those 21 and older with a valid ID and purchase up to an ounce of pot at dispensaries. The drug can only be consumed in a private home, not in public, including the Strip, hotels and casinos. Violators face a misdemeanor citation and $600 fine.

I'm all for pot being legal, but really, it's an "emergency" when a state is running low?? that's just a BIT dramatic, IMO lol

One man's emergency is another's reason to laugh.

The headline/story says a few things:

1. They have a winning industry and underestimated it.
2. They need to expand. In this case, need more farms.
3. This is a huge cash cow, and the State of Nevada knows it.

But yeah, emergency? What emergency? My guess is that because the industry will grind to a halt until they can fix their supply problem. That means lots of lost wages, idle processing and retail outlets, overhead costs going up while no revenue is coming in. It would appear Nevada recognizes this as a viable and necessary industry and is seeking to protect it. I like that.

I just wonder how they could have so horribly underprojected?

Nice problem to have, though. Pot is going to be an industrial force to be reckoned with. The only thing holding back this industry is the feds. Big time investors are waiting to get in on this, but until the feds loosen those restrictions, there will be literally billions in capital just waiting for this industry.

One thing about Oregon, we always have a huge selection of the finest pot in the world, it's like walking into a candy store inside Disneyland. Nothing but positive vibes and happy feelings. The employees are always smiling and happy and everyone in the store is always having a good time. I suppose the novelty will one day wear off, but two years into it here in Oregon, it hasn't. They've got pot campgrounds, pot tours, pot boat rides etc now. A whole tourism industry centering around pot is developing here and I think Nevada sees a portion of the tourism and tourist dollar benefit, as well.

I am too - but as it states in the story - ppl have to have product to sell to stay in business and employ ppl.

As to the rules... you have to have a ID (local resident only?) and cannot consume in public (incl hotels). So no tourist allowed?

I wondered about that too, saw this:
Quote:
Tourists are expected to make nearly two of every three recreational pot purchases in Nevada. But people can only use the drug in a private home as it remains illegal to consume it in public, including the Las Vegas Strip, hotels and casino floors. Violators face a $600 fine.

"I have yet to figure that out," Lorenzo (a tourist) said of where he will smoke the weed he got at the Essence dispensary, which along with others had stacks of pamphlets stating the regulations in every checkout station.
You know they'll be smoking it in their hotel room bathroom by the ceiling fan, or out on balconies. They'll smoke it anywhere. Pot ain't like booze or white dope, where people get all weird and the public becomes endangered by tweakers or drunks.
