Nevada’s top recreational marijuana regulator stepping down

The director of the Nevada Department of Taxation, who also serves as the chief regulator of the state’s fledgling adult-use marijuana industry, has announced her resignation.

Deonne Contine will leave Feb. 9 to pursue an opportunity in the private sector.

Gov. Brian Sandoval said he will appoint Contine’s successor in the near future.

The governor said Contine’s experience, skills and hard work served the state well as she oversaw the July 1 launch of recreational marijuana sales, which became legal under a voter-approved initiative.

Nevada’s rec cannabis industry generated $21 million in the first month of sales, and they have remained strong.
