Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Moving Forward

People interested in opening a marijuana dispensary here in the valley had the chance to get some critical information, during a symposium held Friday.

The Nevada Medical Cannabis Symposium at Alexis Park Hotel featured legislators and industry experts talking about how dispensaries will be regulated.

With the legislation that passed last April, local lawmakers are now working on setting up the best model for Nevada.

WE CAN, or Wellness Education Cannabis Advocates of Nevada, an organization designed to bring dispensary information to the public, was at Friday's meeting.

"You're going to be able to look at your funds, look at your team and look at all of the different integral aspects making a cannabis business and know whether you want to pursue this or not" Jennifer Solas, WE CAN president, said.

One of the bill's sponsor's, state Senator Tick Segerblom, says they have already had interest from other states and viable companies willing to move to Nevada.

The symposium continues Saturday.
