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

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?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
