Sandoval signs medical marijuana dispensary law
Thursday - 6/13/2013, 1:20am EDT
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- After 13 years of waiting, medical marijuana patients in Nevada will soon have a legal way to obtain the drug without growing it themselves.
Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval signed SB374 into law Wednesday evening. The measure establishes the framework to make pot available to medical marijuana card holders, and imposes fees and requirements for growers, processors and dispensaries. It also contains provisions to continue to allow home-growing until 2016.
The tax revenue created will first fund the regulation of the dispensaries. Any remaining revenue will be funneled to education.
According to the National Conference on State Legislatures, Nevada is the 14th state to legalize medical marijuana dispensaries, and one of 19 states to allow medicinal pot, along with the District of Columbia.
