With more and more dispensaries and grow facilities beginning to open their doors, there is no shortage of medical marijuana news in Las Vegas. Let’s take a look at what has been happening the past couple weeks.
Job Fair makes our Medical Marijuana News
Terra Tech Corp. has it in the works to open several medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state this year – hopefully in the next few months. With these openings, they are already making hiring plans.
To find the right employees Terra Tech is holding a job fair today at the Palms’ Fantasy Tower. They will try to fill more than 100 jobs by the end of the year.
Vegas Man Fired Because of Medical Marijuana Use
A Las Vegas man is facing quite a bit of difficulty because of this use of medical marijuana. Pit Stop Carwash terminated the employment of Kyler Wortham because he tested positive for marijuana. Even though Wortham is licensed to use medical marijuana, Pit Stop Carwash is standing firm with their decision.
Pit Stop has released a statement regarding the firing.
“Pot Tourism” Helping Las Vegas Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
The tourism industry has always been strong in Vegas. But now that legal dispensaries are popping up, it is big medical marijuana news that “pot tourism” is growing. With the recent CES convention and Nevada’s reciprocal laws, dispensaries like ReLeaf are seeing a big uptick in sales from out of state users.
All Women Owned Dispensary Opens
You might be surprised to know that there is only one medical marijuana dispensary in Las Vegas that is 100% owned by women. Sahara Wellness dispensary is up and running and the owners are quite passionate about how cannabis helps their patients.
Advertising Rules Loosened in Vegas
When you are selling medical marijuana, you quickly learn that marketing and advertising isn’t the same as other types of businesses. The City of Las Vegas has recently loosened their rules about billboard advertising. Clark County had less stringent rules and the City is now having a trial run for a year to see if making changes to their current ordinance would be appropriate.
