The Nevada Department of Taxation’s Marijuana Enforcement Division welcomes you to Metrc LLC – Metrc (Marijuana Enforcement Tracking Reporting & Compliance). Nevada has selected Metrc as the state inventory tracking and compliance system for marijuana establishments. Effective November 1, 2017, all medical and adult-use marijuana establishments in Nevada must report their establishment data to the state of Nevada via Metrc. This includes cultivators, product manufacturers, testing labs, distributors, and dispensaries/retail stores.
This site is intended to give establishments information that will help them use Metrc to remain in compliance with Nevada’s tracking and reporting requirements. More information may be added to this page during and beyond Nevada’s transition to Metrc.
For information on Nevada’s marijuana program – including regulatory requirements – visit the Department of Taxation’s website at https://tax.nv.gov.
