Dying On the Vine: The State Of Medical Marijuana In Nevada
Dying On the Vine: The State Of Medical Marijuana In Nevada

Listen
AIR DATE: January 24, 2014

The state of Nevada has moved at a glacial pace when it comes to medical marijuana. Although voters authorized its use back in 2000, it wasn't until last year that lawmakers set up a legal framework for dispensing the drug. But now the biggest cities in the state have voted not to authorize any dispensaries for several months due to concerns about the legal status of marijuana. So when will we see dispensaries in Nevada? Or is it possible that this industry will never get off the ground?
