Nevada Lawmakers Introduce Measure to Establish Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Legislation has been introduced in the Nevada Assembly seeking to allow for state-licensed facilities to provide medical marijuana to authorized patients.

Assembly Bill 438 proposes to permit the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries in the state. Licensed dispensaries would be permitted under the law to legally acquire, possess, cultivate, manufacture, deliver, transfer, transport, supply, sell, or dispenses marijuana, and marijuana-related supplies and educational materials to authorized patients or their caregivers. The bill does not restrict existing law which allows for qualified patients and caregivers the option to grow limited amounts of marijuana for their own medical use.

Full text of the measure is available here. You can view a recent television interview in support of AB 438 here.

Similar legislation is already in place in several states, including Colorado, Maine, New Mexico, and Rhode Island.

AB 438 has been referred to the Committee of Health and Human Services. However, committee chair April Mastroluca has so far refused to schedule it for a AB 438 must be called for a hearing before Friday, April 15th, or it is dead for the session. This is why it is imperative you urge your representative to stand up for Nevada’s patients and support AB 438. A list of committee members can be viewed here.
