Money Approved for More Medical Marijuana Staff in Nevada

Posted: Updated:

More staff has been authorized to implement Nevada's new medical marijuana law.
 
A panel of state lawmakers Thursday approved $365,000 to hire five administrators who will oversee applications and inspectors for pot growers, processors and dispensaries.
 
Money from the state's general fund will be repaid through fees once the program is up and running.
 
Nevada voters approved medical marijuana in 2000, but the only way for patients to obtain has been to grow it themselves.
 
That's about to change after legislators in 2013 approved a bill setting up a distribution and taxing structure for medical marijuana.  (AP)
