A 28-page bill regarding licensing of medical marijuana establishments in the city of Las Vegas remains a work in progress, but final decisions are expected at Wednesday’s Las Vegas City Council meeting.
On Monday, a three-member recommending committee discussed plenty of changes but passed the bill on to the full council for consideration as written, with the understanding it will be changed.
After the meeting, former City Councilman Frank Hawkins said his two major concerns are the restrictions on advertising in the bill and its failure to address compassionate care.
There is no language allowing a caretaker to go to a dispensary and obtain medical marijuana for a severely ill patient unable to travel.
