State officials in Nevada are considering emergency measures to deal with a lack of marijuana.

Demand has been strong since recreational use was legalised on 1 July.

The Reno Gazette‑Journal reports says there are plenty of outlets but not enough distributors.

Legislation gave liquor wholesalers the right to distribute, but most do not meet the licence requirements.

Nevada's tax department issued a "statement of emergency", which means state officials could adopt emergency measures to combat the shortage.
