Medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries in Nevada have been ordered under Governor Sisolak’s emergency declaration to close storefronts. During this time, patients and adult-use customers will be able to order marijuana products for delivery only. Temporary 60-day licenses are being issued so that more dispensaries can begin making deliveries.
Nevada’s marijuana consumers have been making larger and more frequent purchases over the last week, the Reno Gazette-Journal notes. This is in line what several other states are also reporting. The Marijuana Enforcement Division will be conducting virtual vehicle inspections for marijuana delivery vehicles.
This new procedure will help the division to issue those temporary licenses. The enhanced video equipment will be able to inspect vehicles with a full 360-degree view.
Roy Bingham of BDS Analytics said, “I think the big concern for everyone in the cannabis industry is that this is a short term blip and then we will see a deterioration of the market. While there’s a pickup in sales, it’ll be interesting to see if the demand slacks off.”
The state will not be permitting curbside pickup from dispensaries.
