Figures released by Nevada’s Department of Taxation show that since recreational marijuana was allowed to be sold in July, the state has collected nearly $36 million in taxes.

Nevada collects a 15 percent wholesale tax on medical and recreational sales and another 10 percent tax on recreational marijuana.

The closest recreational dispensary to Utah is in Mesquite, Nev.

West Wendover has been contemplating recreational cannabis sales but an ordinance allowing it has stalled.
