Nevada Could Have Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Medical marijuana dispensaries could be created throughout the state if a bill in the state senate passes.

Under the bill, medical marijuana dispensaries would be non-profit and be regulated by the state.

Nevada voters approved the use of medical marijuana roughly thirteen years ago, but it remains nebulous how patients are to obtain the drug.

KOLO interviewed a woman named “Tracy,” who showed a card she obtained to use marijuana for medical reasons. She said she is in the process of getting a renewal. Tracy said she uses medical marijuana for fibromyalsia and bowel problems.

“The medicine calms my bowels down it helps with nausea it helps me to feel good about myself,” she said.

Those registered with the state are allowed to grow a limited number of marijuana plants. However, Tracy said it is difficult to grow the plants in the desert and she is concerned about thieves. She said dispensaries would be a good solution.
