    A bill currently before the Nevada Legislature would create a system to provide safe access to cannabis for qualified patients under the state's medical marijuana law.

    Sen. Mike Schneider (D-Las Vegas) on Wednesday asked the Commerce and Labor Committee, which he chairs, to support the dispensary bill, reports Geoff Dornan at the Nevada Appeal. The current system allows those with a legitimate medical need to get a card permitting them to use marijuana, but provides no mechanism for safe access.

    Nevada needs to allow the creation of a system that fixes that problem, according to Schneider.

    Several people testified in favor of Senate Bill 336 including Rebecca Gasca of the American Civil Liberties Union, who said because Nevada voters put into the state constitution the right to medical marijuana, "this is a constitutional right in the state of Nevada."

    State Sen. Mike Schneider (D-Las Vegas) said Nevada needs to allow creation of a system that offers safe access to medical marijuana patients

    ​ More than two-thirds of voters supported the medical marijuana question, according to Gasca, but lawmakers didn't follow through with a system to provide safe access to cannabis.

    "There's no legal way for them to obtain their medicine," Gasca said. "It's forcing patients to engage in felonious activity."

    Schneider said medical marijuana authorization data would be computerized, enabling authorities to look for doctors issuing "too many" authorizations.

    The other real issue, according to Schneider, is the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, which goes after growers, providers and doctors.

    The committee took no action on the measure.

    Gasca said after the hearing for SB 336 that Assembly Bill 438, introduced by Ed Goedhart (R-Amargosa), is a better approach that sets up a three-tiered system of growers, processors and providers to get medical marijuana to those who need it and are authorized to use it medically.

    Will these dispensaries in question be privately owned and operated while being monitored by the state department or will there be government branches opening up that sell and grow their on weed?

    I doubt they have any idea on structuring dispensaries & making cohesive laws that actually work fluently instead of archaic laws meant to stifle.

    /Ranting a little... basically too early to tell IMO. However, I'm not in Nevada so I may be short sighted.

    I'm just thinking about starting up a dispensary there if it's privately operated with regulations, California seems too congested with competition. If they're still indecisive about how they'll make the bill, they might just go about it like New Jersey and make a set legal amount(28 joints per month?) that can only be dispensed by 5 dispensaries in the state.

    I would agree but......I have my card for insomnia. Do I sleep without smoking? yes. Do I sleep better when I do smoke? yes! BAM! I'm using it as medicine. lol

    Should it really only be used for medicinal use ONLY tho? That's the question. Recreational use should be legal due to the fact alcohol and tobacco are.

    ok ill re-word it

    90% of people who use a dispensary searched their lives hard for anything to tell a doctor that could possibly get them a card

    lol

    insomnia? lol i hope canada does the dispensary thing soon.... cuz this is too easy

    we have "compassion clubs"(like a dispensary) but they arent easy like in the US to become a member and if you dont live in one of the "liberal" provinces such as Quebec or BC then youre SOL
