Thousands of Medical Cannabis Applications Leaked in Nevada
A government-run website in Nevada has leaked over 11,700 applications from those attempting to legally distribute medical cannabis in the state.
A spokesperson for the department says that the website with the leak has been pulled offline to limit the vulnerability; they will be notifying applicants of the leak in the coming days.
Nevada legalized medical cannabis in 2000; however, dispensaries weren’t legalized until 2013, meaning the system is still in its infancy.
Last month Nevada voters gave approval to the legalization of cannabis for everyone 21 and older, including a system of regulated cannabis retail outlets and cultivation centers.
