Nevada Medical Marijuana Regulations Meeting

The Nevada DPBH scheduled a public workshop  for Monday, December 23, 2013, 9:00am at:

Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health
Room 303
4150 Technology Way
Carson City, Nevada

It will be Video Conferenced to:

Nevada Early Intervention Services
3811 W. Charleston Blvd. Suite 112
Las Vegas, Nevada 89102

This meeting is to get input regarding proposed Amendments to NAC453A which could become Nevada Medical Marijuana Regulations, and public comments are being solicited.   Due to scheduling issues, this meeting will not be broadcast over the internet and due to technical difficulties, it cannot be accessed via conference line.  The meeting will still proceed on December 23rd in an effort to stay on schedule for submitting the regulations draft to the Legislative Counsel Bureau by the end of 2013.

Maria McDade Williams, Deputy Administrator at the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health is also willing to work directly with the public to discuss proposed Nevada Medical Marijuana Regulations, but the DPBH cannot change anything that is required by SB374.  If you would like to schedule a meeting with Maria McDade Williams, send an email to:
medicalmarijuana@health.nv.gov

After the regulations are returned from the Legislative Counsel Bureau in a proposed form, another Public Workshop will be scheduled to review the legal language of the proposal.  A State Board of Health Adoption Hearing will also be scheduled where additional changes can be made.  All issues must be settled before submitting the final draft  to the Legislative Commission in order to make the April 1, 2014 deadline for adopting Nevada Medical Marijuana Regulations.

Small Business Impact Statement

The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) released their Small Business Impact Statement which reviewed the 6 public responses to their Questionnaire on the impact of proposed amendments to NAC453A.  The DPBH determined that they would not cause a significant burden on small business or restrict the formation of small businesses.  They also determined that the audit fees in this privileged industry are fair and announced that they do not have the authority to change the $250,000 requirement or the non-refundable $5,000 application fee.

Nevada Medical Marijuana Program

The Interim Finance Committee of the Nevada Legislature approved a $377,000 grant for the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program. This money is to be used for the hiring of 7 additional staff members. They will be responsible for reviewing medical marijuana facility applications, drafting regulations, and overseeing the medical marijuana program. I wouldn’t call this a jackpot, but the more money invested by the state, the better!
