Medical marijuana dispensary Nevada Organix has been approved for a special use permit by Carson City planning commissioners despite opposition.
The opposition, it should be noted, came from Carson City resident Jeff Fuhrman, who owns a landscaping supply firm named Nevada Organics – certainly valid grounds for opposing the similarly-named dispensary, but also certainly not an issue of anti-marijuana moral campaigning.
Nevada Organix will be located at 135 Clearview Drive. CEO Bill Myer also operates Arizona Organix in Phoenix, and estimates serving about 40-50 patients per day at the Carson City location to start. There is no estimated opening date for the dispensary yet.
By state law, Carson City can have two dispensaries; this is the first one approved for operation.
