Las Vegas pot dispensary to reopen after six-day suspension

The first marijuana dispensary to have its license suspended by the Nevada Department of Taxation had that ban lifted Wednesday afternoon and was prepared to reopen.

Pisos, 4110 S. Maryland Parkway, was disciplined May 24 by the Taxation Department, which oversees the legal marijuana industry, said department spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein. The department declined comment on the violations, saying only that Pisos was “out of compliance” with state regulations.

Multiple sources with knowledge of the suspension said Pisos failed a state-mandated inspection after authorities found unlabeled merchandise in its inventory. Dispensary representatives declined comment.

A Pisos representative said Wednesday just after 5 p.m. that the 24-hour dispensary was still closed but was prepared to open later in the evening.

Pisos first opened in June 2016 and is licensed to sell both medical and recreational marijuana.

At least four marijuana testing labs and one cultivation facility in Nevada have also had their licenses temporarily suspended.
