North Las Vegas plans to hop on the medical marijuana bandwagon after all. A top city official said Tuesday that a town hall meeting to kick-start to create regulations on medical pot dispensaries and growing operations will be held April 22.
Nevadans legalized medical marijuana more than a decade ago. Last year, the Legislature finally caught up to the constitutional amendment by authorizing dispensaries to sell the drug to patients. Soon more sick Nevadans will be buying and using medical marijuana — fully within the law.
The Las Vegas business licensing department, led by manager Karen Duddlesten, came under fire for the second time in as many weeks on Tuesday for drafting what many called “hypocritical” regulations in what will eventually be a proposed medical marijuana ordinance in May.
