7/1/17 Marks the End of Cannabis Prohibition in Nevada

As recreational sales started throughout Nevada, Team Dixie was on the ground in Las Vegas. Here's what went down...


Patrons line up outside The Grove Dispensary on #7117 to be among the first to purchase adult-use cannabis.

Last November, Nevadans voted to allow recreational cannabis for those over 21 statewide. Court cases and uncertainty with distribution and regulatory frameworks in the final weeks before the planned July 1 start date left many—especially those in the industry—unclear if recreational marijuana would actually be available for purchase as planned. Just days before, distribution rights and other regulatory hurdles were settled and it became clear that 7/1/17 was going to be historic.

Specialists from Dixie’s Denver headquarters immediately deployed to Las Vegas to help prepare for, what many believe, will be one of the main tipping points in the move towards Federal legalization. Ari Cohen, Dixie’s Director of Operations, said “This week we are ending prohibition for the citizens of Nevada and the millions of tourists that come here every year. I’m really proud to be a part of making cannabis history with Dixie and our partners here in Nevada.”

Recreational sales began in Las Vegas after midnight on July 1st and have greatly exceeded expectations at many dispensaries around Nevada. Throughout the weekend, customers and patients braved the heat to purchase recreational marijuana products, enthusiastically demonstrating support for their newly returned freedoms. We at Dixie could not be more excited to be blazin’ trails in the Future of Cannabis.

Some newspapers and news shows played up a story that contends legalized marijuana has made our roads and highways less safe. It may so...

Colorado’s learning curve could be the most useful test case for the Canadian government as Ottawa moves from broad legalization of dried and fresh cannabis, seeds and oil — targeted for July of 2018 — to edibles, the time line for which has not been set. “Designing an appropriate regulatory system for cannabis edibles is a complex undertak...

Smoking weed is permitted in 30 states in America. But in the majority of those states, it's only allowed for medicinal purposes. While adult use for those over 21 is allowed in eight states and the District of Columbia, weed is still a ways off from being fully legalized at the federal level. And that is giving way to a hazy regulatory environ...
