Nevada Dispensary Association Announces Overwhelming Retail Sales in Local Dispensaries in Las Vegas
The Nevada Dispensary Association (NDA) announced that the first weekend of recreational marijuana sales was a huge success. Locals and tourists alike lined up to legally purchase products beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, July 1 (Pictured: State Senator Tick Segerblom, NDA Executive Director Riana Durrett, Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak and NDA President Andrew Jolley – Photo credit: Joe Durkin). 

The NDA and local industry worked diligently to prepare for high consumer demand, with compliance of strict rules and regulations. Licensed dispensaries across Clark, Washoe and Nye counties held celebratory events throughout the weekend to recognize the end of marijuana prohibition statewide. Senator Tick Segerblom has been instrumental in the legislation leading up to the success of this program. “Once again, our state shows the world that if you want to have fun, come to Nevada. And help us pay for our schools,” said Segerblom.

“Based on our sales and my conversations with other businesses, I believe there were at least three to five million dollars in sales over the weekend,” said Nevada Dispensary Association executive director, Riana Durrett. “This aligns with our projected 30 million dollars in sales over the next six months.”

President of the NDA and CEO of The+Source dispensaries, Andrew Jolley, provided his insights as well, noting that “we expect the high demand to continue across the next several weeks, and we couldn’t be happier that we helped to create the legal tax-paying market in this state.”
