Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Coming To Reno

Posted By Joey Gilbert Law || 13-Nov-2014

RENO, NEV – As of November 3, the Nevada department of Health and Human Services has awarded 55 preliminary licenses to Medical Marijuana Dispensaries, as well as, over 300 more permits for various types of other medical cannabis businesses. With numerous companies vying for an opportunity, the State was notably generous to those wishing to establish marijuana cultivation sites, approving 182. 117 licenses were granted for production facilities – those which wanted to make infused products – and 17 licenses for testing labs.

Of the 199 groups that applied for dispensary permits, those 55 preliminary licenses were granted in short award to those who applied. The reasoning for the low approval rate: the State of Nevada limits the number of dispensaries by county.

Overall, 519 business had submitted an application with the State to enter the Medical Cannabis industry.However, only a handful of business agreed to let the State publish their names and application scores, leaving many winning bids still anonymous.

One of those companies, Northern Nevada's own The CannaVative Group plans to grow into the number one Medical Marijuana Program in the country, providing safe medical marijuana and resources to the patients that truly need it.
