CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada senators who wanted to increase the number of medical marijuana licenses throughout the state are instead backing a plan to reallocate ones that were never claimed.

Democratic Sen. Tick Segerblom and Republican Sen. Patricia Farley presented SB276 to the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday.

They want to reallocate 11 medical marijuana licenses that were designated for rural counties but never claimed, and offer eight of them to Clark County businesses, one to businesses in unincorporated Washoe County and two in Reno.

Segerblom said there was concern about adding to the more than 60 licenses available, so he’s backing an amendment to reallocate unused licenses.

Lawmakers approved regulations for the cultivation and sale of medical marijuana in 2013, although voters legalized medical pot in 2000.
