Medical Marijuana Bill Proposed in Nevada

by Ed Vogel

 

A bill allowing registered medical marijuana users in Nevada to acquire the outlawed drug is one of the 144 bills being drawn up for consideration at the 2013 Legislature.

Assemblyman Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, said Monday he requested the bill, which would be introduced in the state Senate if he is elected to the upper house, because there is no legal way to obtain the drug, which is used to help people with glaucoma and cancer patients who suffer loss of appetite because of chemotherapy.

The medical marijuana law, implemented in 2001 after overwhelming voter support, allows each person with a state card to grow as many as four mature and three immature marijuana plants and have on hand no more than 1 ounce of usable marijuana.

Unlike Colorado, upon which Segerblom patterned his bill, Nevada does not allow dispensaries where marijuana is sold.
