Nevada Governor Declares State of Emergency as Recreational Marijuana Outlets Run Low

The Weedly Report is a digital publication covering marijuana, its uses, benefits and risks. We explore the latest marijuana legislation, medicinal applications, recreational uses, products, and impact on our culture. Love it or hate it, cannabis is a part of the American experience.

No, this breaking news story wasn’t written by Spicoli, or sponsored by Cheech and Chong. In fact, check Snopes, its real alright. And, its a glimpse into your state’s future as the markets and consumers scream loudly for more recreational weed.

Nevada’s Governor declared a state of emergency on Friday, July 07, 2017 as the state’s marijuana dispensaries began to run out of weed only about two weeks after recreational marijuana became legal in the state known for it’s gambling strips. That’s right, the high rollers of Nevada can now be considered high rollers.  The Governor’s declaration will allow the state legislature to make moves to help alleviate the shortage of marijuana - in other words, “pass the Dutchie from the left hand side”. (If you’re a newbie to all this, here you go: .

It is reported Nevada’s Department of Taxation has stated that many of the state’s recreational dispensaries may run out of weed supply within days if the supply is not improved. Nevada’s concern is that business owners across the state have geared up for the new weed boom, training new employees and investing in infrastructure. If the supply is not increased, state leaders are worried the new weed windfall and all the jobs that have come with it, will come to a grinding halt.

According to, Nevada has marijuana dispensaries in Carson City, Incline Village, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Mesquite, Pahrump, and Reno / Sparks. It is unclear in this directory how many of them are medicinal dispensaries and how many also hold a recreational licenses.  Also according to, for those holding a medical marijuana license (even from out of state) possession up to 2.5 oz of cannabis is legal. For those dispensaries holding a recreational license, they may sell weed to those individuals in possession of a valid government issued I.D. who are 21 years or older.  Nevada maintains reciprocity with other medical marijuana states, meaning your medical card from out-of-state is valid at any Nevada dispensary.

More time will have to pass before we can weed out what will bring in more money for the gambling capital of the U.S.: Slot machines, ganja or pizza delivery? We will see. For now, “Pass the dutchie from the left hand side”.

AZ Fire Update July 10 2017

Listen to your news online at 

According to the Arizona Incident Information system, there are 24 active wildfires in our state, totaling more than 247,000 acres.

This includes the recent Brooklyn Fire which started July 7th - 6 miles north-northeast of Black Canyon City. The Brooklyn fire was Caused by Lightning and is currently 35,000 Acres and 0% Contained.

There will be a community meeting tonight July 10, 2017 at 6 p.m. The meeting will be at the Canon Elementary School in Black Canyon. Fire managers and officials will be on hand to brief the public on the Brooklyn Fire and answer questions.

The lightning caused fires that started on July 7 were highly impacted by strong, gusty and erratic winds from passing thunderstorms. The strong winds caused incident aircraft to be temporarily grounded and pushed the fire south and east. The Bull and Cedar Fires are located southeast of the Brooklyn Fire in remote areas of the Tonto National Forest with difficult access. These two fires are not threatening any structures and are being patrolled by firefighters. 

Thunderstorm build up and outflow winds are the main concerns for operations today. Firefighters are working to keep the Brooklyn Fire east of the Agua Fria River and south of highway 269 and north of Black Canyon City. They will also be evaluating values at risk in the area and assessing structure protection needs. Resources are available for response to any new starts in the area.
