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.
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.
