The Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) has opened its first medical marijuana patient card application office at 2300 West Sahara Avenue, suite 800. Southern Nevada medical marijuana patients will now be able to receive a patient card on the same day they submit their application to the Las Vegas patient office.
In a public-private partnership between the Nevada Dispensary Association and DPBH, the state is now serving Southern Nevada patients by allowing them to receive same-day approval of their medical marijuana application. The industry has worked closely with DPBH to support and set up the Las Vegas patient office.
Dispensaries will continue to aid in the success of the office by pre-reviewing patient applications to ensure they are complete and accurate. Some of the dispensaries pre-reviewing patient applications include Inyo Fine Cannabis, Essence, Euphoria Wellness, Medizin, The Grove, Oasis Medical Cannabis, and Deep Roots.
Senator Patricia Farley commended the application office opening, noting, “Removing barriers to simple, efficient access to medical marijuana patient cards for our state’s patients is an encouraging sign of growth in Nevada. I am impressed at the efforts the Nevada Dispensary Association and the Division have expended toward reaching the common goal of serving Nevada’s patients.”
“This unprecedented cooperation between the Division of Public and Behavioral Health and the medical marijuana industry is an encouraging step towards a healthy, thriving industry in Nevada,” offered Riana Durrett, Nevada Dispensary Association Executive Director. “We appreciate the State’s diligent efforts.”
