LAS VEGAS (AP) — Despite more marijuana licenses available from the state, parts of rural Nevada continue to shun the business.
But in other parts of rural Nevada, seeds of industry might be sprouting.
Las Vegas dispensary Acres Cannabis has a dispensary under development in Ely. Acres CEO John Mueller said he hopes once his and other dispensaries under development in rural Nevada become operational, other cities and counties might warm up to marijuana.
“All of us fight for city of Las Vegas tourists,” Mueller said. “The rural market is underserved, really, across the country.”
