Nevada regulators said Tuesday they will allow businesses other than alcohol wholesalers to distribute cannabis.

The Nevada Tax Commission rejected an appeal by a liquor group which claimed they had exclusive rights to transfer cannabis from grow to retail. The commission voted to uphold their previous decision to expand licensing beyond alcohol distributors since they have been unable to keep up with demand.  

The distribution battle erupted between cannabis companies and liquor distributors after the voter-approved measure gave sole power to liquor distributors for one year.

Kevin Benson, a lawyer who worked the case for the Independent Alcohol Distributors of Nevada, said his group did not decide whether to file another lawsuit which would challenge the state’s decision.
