Thousands of medical marijuana agent applications for people looking to run a dispensary were exposed online, according to a statement from the Nevada Division of Public Behavioral Health.
A flaw in the state's website portal exposed data.
The information leaked includes application details, including a person's full name and home address, citizenship status, driver license and social security numbers, phone numbers, birth date, race, height, weight, and hair and eye color.

The division also is notifying three major credit reporting agencies - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion - about the breach and encourages anyone whose information may have been compromised to contact the agencies.
The state government will be notifying applicants in the next few days of the leak in line with state law.
