3 months into recreational marijuana sales, Nevada dispensaries experience pot shortage

The Nevada Department of Taxation recently released data about the first month of sales. It shows Marijuana sales in July alone generated more than $3.6 million in taxes. Nearly a million of that will benefit schools across the state. About $2.5 million will go into the rainy day fund. Tax officials said they don't have figures for August or September yet, but they expect Nevada's marijuana industry to generate nearly $120 million in tax revenue over the next two years. Many local dispensary owners attribute the success, in part, to Nevada's tourism industry. A representative with MYNT Cannabis in Reno said the launch of recreational marijuana during a busy event season also helped with sales. Stacy Castillo said, "a lot of it plays into the tourist industry here. We have a lot of people coming in from out of town to just partake in the many events we have. It kind of fell right into events season for us and I think that was a big part of why we did so well." Nevada is a reciprocity state, meaning people who live out of state can come here and purchase marijuana as long as they're over 21.
