Judge’s Ruling Allows Nevada Liquor Dealers to Sell Marijuana


Regulators in Nevada are still determined to launch recreational marijuana sales via medical marijuana dispensaries on July 1, even though a Nevada judge put roadblocks in place on June 20.

A temporary order previously issued has been extended, according to Nevada Public Radio, and the extension of the temporary order bans existing medical marijuana dispensaries from obtaining proper licenses to sell recreational marijuana.

Until another order is issued or the ban expires, only licensed liquor wholesale dealers will be permitted to have recreational marijuana licenses, which will make Nevada the first state to have liquor companies legally selling marijuana.

There are no mentions of further actions planned by the existing medical marijuana dispensaries or marijuana regulators in Nevada yet.
