The Las Vegas Medical Marijuana BOOM!

The demand for legal, medical marijuana in Nevada is expected to more than double in 2015 as dispensaries open and lawmakers discuss further legislation for the new industry.

Pam Graber works for Nevada’s medical marijuana program and recently stated, “If Nevada performs as other states have, then our numbers will continue to go up as awareness rises.”

Nevada is likely to be one of the largest markets in the country.

As dispensaries open legally, locals obtaining their medical marijuana cards no longer need to grow weed on their own. And because of the projected large amount of new clients using weed for medicinal purposes, several bills have been drafted proposing an increase in the amount of dispensaries allowed in each jurisdiction statewide.

Local Concerns about Medical Marijuana in Las Vegas

Local Concerns about Medical Marijuana in Las Vegas

Recent buzz on the legalization of medical marijuana in Nevada has focused around the rising prices of medical marijuana due to a state regulation allowing the Division of Public and Behavioral Health to limit the cultivation of medical marijuana in Southern Nevada.

 

Clark County Commissioners are discussing this issue, in preparation for the legal opening of numerous medical marijuana dispensaries and grow facilities in several months. (Note: the county approved 18 dispensaries, 38 production facilities, and 5 labs that test medical marijuana.)

 

As reported by the Las Vegas Review Journal, Clark Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak stated that putting a limit on the cultivation of medical marijuana would unnecessarily drive up the price for patients. Sisolak favors, instead, allowing the free enterprise system to determine what the demand is, and then supplying according to that demand.

 

Fellow Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani noted that the issue will require input and insight from the local business community. “I don’t want to do anything to drive up the cost of people’s medicine just because we set an artificial number,” she said (as noted by the LVRJ).

What will the price of Medical Marijuana in Las Vegas be?

What will the price of Medical Marijuana in Las Vegas be?

In recent months, the legalization of medical marijuana in Las Vegas has been the topic of numerous conversations. One of the more specific topics to surface recently is the potentially-rising cost of medical marijuana.

 

This topic concerns the already-approved business owners and entrepreneurs who are poised to profit off dispensaries and grow houses, and it concerns local government agencies who approve individuals and partners looking to enter the emerging industry.

 

The crux of the matter lies here: there is a state regulation that allows the Division of Public and Behavioral Health to limit cultivation of medical marijuana in Southern Nevada.

 

As reported by the Las Vegas Review Journal, the president of the nonprofit advocacy group Las Vegas Medical Marijuana Association, John Laub, said he is “completely appalled” that the state is discussing the cap and the association is “dead set against any type of limitations” on cultivation.

 

In regards to the supply and demand aspect of this discussion, more complexities arise. One example is products that are infused with medical marijuana and require a high, concentrated amount of the drug (i.e. edibles).

 

Already, Nevada has over 6,000 medical marijuana cardholders, and the number is growing. According to the LVRJ, State Senator Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, has estimated the number could jump to 50,000 after the dispensaries open! Segerblom, similarly to Laub, does not support a cap on the square footage of cultivation facilities. He believes the market can decide on its own.
