The Source, with two marijuana locations in Las Vegas, said it is transitioning to medical-only sales for its patients as an additional safety precaution amid the coronavirus pandemic, becoming the latest retailer to do so.
“Together, we can help medical patients receive the attention and safety needed to continue their care in this industry, and we will continue recreational sales at a later date, as the state of our city develops,” Brandon Wiegand, regional general manager, said in a statement.
Illinois marijuana retailers have reported similar moves.
MOCA Modern Cannabis suspended recreational marijuana sales last week to focus on more vulnerable MMJ customers, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Chicago-based Dispensary 33 this week also halted recreational sales until further notice. The Tribune reported that the dispensary could not keep customers at a safe distances from each other.
In Massachusetts, New England Treatment Access (NETA) said that as of Monday its Brookline dispensary was serving only medical marijuana patients, according to MassLive.com.
NETA’s Northampton store remained open to both medical and adult-use customers.
