Reno Decides Against Delay On Recreational Pot Sales

The Reno City Council decided not to pursue a six-month delay on approving sales of recreational marijuana.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reportsseveral representatives of the industry spoke out at the hearing.  One dispensary owner pointed out that neither the city of Sparks nor Washoe County has passed such a moratorium, so passing one in Reno would simply drive customers to seek recreational pot elsewhere in the county. 

The state’s early start program will license qualifying medical dispensaries to sell the recreational product this summer.
