Nevada gambling board has first medical pot case
Question of the Day
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada gambling regulators are making their first foray into the world of medical marijuana in a case involving a slot route operator with ties to one of the new medical pot dispensaries in Las Vegas.
The Gaming Control Board told owners of a Las Vegas restaurant Thursday they need to find a new operator with no connections to the medical marijuana business.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://tinyurl.com/lge3wdf ) the panel recommended approving a restricted, two-year license for the Crab Corner’s five slot machines, but only if Nevada Gaming Partners isn’t involved.
The firm is owned by Bruce Familian, whose wife, Sarah, has an 8 percent stake in GB Sciences Nevada, LLC - one of 18 dispensaries county commissioners awarded last month.
The recommendation goes to the state Gaming Commission July 24.
