CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada senators have approved a plan to reallocate medical marijuana licenses that were never claimed.
The Senate Finance Committee passed SB276 on Friday. The bill was presented by Democratic Sen. Tick Segerblom and Republican Sen. Patricia Farley.
The bill would reallocate 11 medical marijuana licenses that were designated for rural counties but never claimed, and offer eight of them to Clark County businesses. One license each would go to unincorporated Washoe County, Reno and Sparks.
Lawmakers approved regulations for the cultivation and sale of medical marijuana in 2013, although voters legalized medical pot in 2000.
