The State of Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public and Behavioral Health just announced (via email) that it will be accepting applications from qualified applicants for Medical Marijuana Establishment Registration Certificates. The Division of Public and Behavioral Health (Division) will be accepting application for ten business days from August 5 through August 18, 2014, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Applications must be postmarked within this ten business day period or physically received in the Division’s offices at 4150 Technology Way, Carson City, Nevada 89706 by 5:00 p.m. on August 18, 2014. Applications received before August 5th will NOT be considered. Likewise, applications received after 5:00 p.m. on August 18 will not be considered.
The application form can be found on the Division’s Medical Marijuana Program web page. Having already dealt with multiple states for cannabis licensing, and being aware of how state governments are not always the best at keeping track of documents mailed to them, our cannabis attorneys plan to send someone from our firm to Carson City with all of our client applications.
Applications for Medical Marijuana Establishment Registration Certificates will be evaluated based on seven weighted “merit criteria” each of which has been assigned a specified number of “points.” There are two important things you should know about Nevada cannabis licensing. The first is that Nevada actually will grant licenses to out of staters. That’s right, you do not need to be a Nevada residence to obtain a Nevada cannabis license.
The other thing you need to know is that Nevada’s cannabis applications are the most difficult and time consuming of any state in which our cannabis lawyers have done licensing work. In other words, if you are thinking of applying for a cannabis license in Nevada, you had better start on your application right now!
