City council makes decisions on medical marijuana businesses

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas City Council made a number of decisions about the regulations of medical marijuana establishments that want to set up shop within city limits.

Among the decisions made during Wednesday's four and half hour meeting, shops will be allowed to be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Shops will be allowed to deliver products to cardholders.

When it comes to revenue,  the city decided there will be a gross revenue fee of between five and seven percent, depending on the business' level of involvement with cultivation, production and dispensing.

The council decided medical pot establishments can advertise, but they cannot be false, deceptive or misleading. They also cannot be aimed at minors.

The application process will begin sometime in July with workshops planned to help applicants. The city of Las Vegas will be allowed under state law to license up 12 medical marijuana dispensaries. 

Clark County started weeding through the applicants for medical marijuana establishments in its jurisdiction Wednesday. The process is expected to take several days.
