Nevada Becomes the 14th State to Legalize Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

by ALEX POMPLIANO

Gov. Brian Sandoval signed SB374 into law Wednesday evening, which authorizes and regulates medical marijuana dispensaries to serve Nevadans with medical marijuana cards. The bill also contains provisions to continue to allow home-growing until 2016. (It’s currently legal for Nevada medical marijuana card holders to grow the plant in their homes.)

The tax revenue created will first fund the regulation of the dispensaries. Any remaining revenue will be funneled to education.

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.
