Nevada Soon Will Have Legal Marijuana Dispensaries

To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. The only good thing about this bill is that it's going to be more regulated. So weed smokers are still going to go to jail if they smoke and drive or smoke and drive and cause injuries because they are high. And let me just predict how this is going to happen, mmmkay?

You know damn well that the pot heads are going to be smoking and driving and causing accidents..hopefully they get the book thrown at them for doing so. And the fact that people can only grow their own until 2016...isn't going to stop them from growing and the pot heads are going to mumble and grumble and complain about this left and right. 

Taken from...

CARSON CITY, Nev. -- After 13 years of waiting, medical marijuana patients in Nevada will soon have a legal way to obtain the drug without growing it themselves.

Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval signed SB374 into law Wednesday evening. The measure establishes the framework to make pot available to medical marijuana card holders, and imposes fees and requirements for growers, processors and dispensaries. It also contains provisions to continue to allow home-growing until 2016.

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

According to the National Conference on State Legislatures, 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.
