NEVADA: State officials say they will miss the Nevada Legislature’s April 1 deadline to begin accepting applications from medical marijuana providers and growers.
Marla McDade Williams of the state Health Division said regulations must be approved before the agency can accept applications.
“We may have staff on board April 1, but we’re looking to the summer before we can open requests for applications,” she told the Nevada Appeal.
Williams, who will manage the program for the Health Division, said she doubts the state will license facilities to provide patients with medical marijuana until September or October.
After the division writes the regulations, they must be approved by the state Board of Health and the Legislative Commission. They also must be reviewed by the Legislative Counsel Bureau.
