Henderson residents will have to wait a little longer to be able to buy recreational marijuana within their city.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports The Henderson City Council voted this week to extend the citywide marijuana moratorium originally put in place in February.
The moratorium was extended for 30 days to give city staff time to present the City Council with regulations at the council’s next meeting. The regulations will be read into title at the August 15 council meeting. The city has licensed nine medical marijuana facilities, including five dispensaries. The moratorium will now expire September 7, which could mean marijuana sales could begin as early as October or November.
