Six inspectors and one supervisor will soon be hired to oversee dozens of expected medical marijuana dispensaries, grow houses and laboratories under Nevada’s new medical marijuana law, a state official said Thursday.
The positions are expected to be filled by March so the inspectors can begin training before the law’s regulations are finalized on April 1, said Marla McDade-Williams, deputy administrator for the state Division of Public and Behavioral Health, after a meeting of the Legislature’s Interim Finance Committee.
They will be in charge of regulating roughly 150 facilities, including the dispensaries themselves, she said.
