Nevada’s Department of Taxation made an announcement that it will expand cultivation and production licenses to rural counties. Currently, thirteen counties are without a single marijuana cultivation or production license.
A marijuana omnibus bill was recently passed that will allow for more licenses, especially in marijuana-barren areas, to be issued, Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Applications will be accepted in counties that have 100,000 or fewer residents. Those requirements mean that all of the counties without a marijuana cultivation or production facility can now have one.
The application period will be from January 2 through 18. Forms are available on the Nevada Department of Taxation website.
