Medical marijuana expands in northern Nevada

January 28, 2017

Since Nevada’s first ever medical marijuana dispensary opened in Sparks in 2015, the industry has taken off in the Silver State. There are now no less than 11 such businesses between Washoe County and Carson City. Some are locally-owned operations while others are outlets attached to bigger outfits with stores in other parts of the state, particularly down south in Clark County (Las Vegas and vicinity). For a list of these medical marijuana dispensaries, addresses and phone numbers, refer to “Medical Marijuana in Reno and Sparks.”

Medical marijuana in Nevada will soon be joined by legal recreational pot. The “Initiative to Regulate and Tax Marijuana” was passed by voters in the 2016 general election. It is anticipated that retail stores will begin opening around the end of 2017, once regulations and enforcement measures are in place. This should happen in a timely manner since the biennial Nevada State Legislature will be in session from February to June, 2017.
