The Yerington Paiute Tribe has asked the city of Yerington and Lyon County to enter into a compact to open a medical marijuana dispensary within city limits.
The potential dispensary site would be in a building behind a Smoke Shop on property that’s owned by the tribe.
Tribal Cannabis Consulting, a national consulting firm based in Nevada, has established cannabis compacts between Gov. Brian Sandoval’s office and the Yerington Paiute, Ely Shoshone and Pyramid Lake Paiute tribes.
The compact governs the production, purchase and sale of marijuana on tribal land. The compacts were signed earlier this summer under a senate bill that recognizes the authority of tribes to grow and sell marijuana in Nevada.
