New Nevada Bill to Allow Marijuana Cultivation in Rural Areas

420

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.
