Unidentified Company Poised To Secure Final Reno Pot License

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Reno Council is poised to award its fourth and final medical marijuana dispensary license to an anonymous company.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that a change to the state's marijuana law this year awarded Reno an additional license. The law also allows the owners of companies competing for licenses to hide their names from the public.

On Wednesday, the Council voted to continue using the state's ranking system to award the final license, rather than selecting a state-certified applicant through its own criteria. Before the law changed, the city was required to give licenses to applicants based on a state ranking.

The city has chosen to award the final license to the fourth-ranked business, which is refusing to allow its name to be released. The company's identity will be released when it applies for the license.
