A bill introduced in Nevada aims to allow mobile cannabis vendors at events that are 21-and-up, KSNV reports. The measure would create licenses for vendors to sell cannabis at certain events, like concerts, if the licenses are permitted by municipalities.
Under the proposal, social-equity applicants would receive priority for the licenses. A’Esha Goins, founder of the Cannabis Equity and Inclusion Community, which is lobbying for the bill, told KSNV that the licenses would remove the huge financial burden for social equity applicants seeking other industry opportunities.
“This is the Nevada. This is truly what we do we introduce small businesses. We establish new ideologies. We are innovated when it comes to how businesses show up. So yes, I think this is the next wave.” — Goins to KSNV
The bill would permit the state Cannabis Compliance Board to create license rules and requirements and allow it to impose fees. The measure was referred to the Assembly Judiciary Committee on March 7.
Among all of the states that have legalized cannabis for adult use, California is the only state so far that explicitly allows cannabis to be sold at concerts and other live events. In New York, cannabis consumption is allowed anywhere tobacco can be consumed, which broadens opportunities for cannabis consumption at many outdoor events.
