Roughly six months after Gov. Brian Sandoval signed SB 374, a bill for medical marijuana dispensaries to operate statewide, some marijuana advocacy groups in Nevada now believe it’s high time to advance their cause by holding events to educate the public on the medicinal benefits of cannabis.
One such event is tentatively scheduled to take place in Pahrump in April.
Representatives with the Nye Cannabis Coalition (NCC) say the organization is planning the first ever “High Desert Cup Music Festival and Cannabis Expo” at Petrack Park.
According to the organization’s Facebook page, the coalition is a “Grass Roots” organization tasked to provide a unified platform voicing the needs of Nye County medical marijuana patients, ensure caregivers’ rights and be sure options are fairly distributed.
