Medical marijuana dispensaries will soon be opening in Nevada, and up to 39 of them can be located right here in Southern Nevada. On November 3, 2014 the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health issued 55 provisional medical marijuana dispensary certificates and most of them were allocated to southern Nevada. The top 12 rated applications from Las Vegas, top 4 from North Las Vegas, top 5 from Henderson, and the top 18 from Clark County can now proceed with their local jurisdictions. Unincorporated Clark County seems to have the most problems with discrepancies between local and state approvals, but they better move fast to keep up with the pace of the other local governments. Medical marijuana dispensaries are opening up in Nevada !

This is daKota Blue on the right. He is less than a year old and has been diagnosed with congenital hip dysplasia, knee problems, elbow problems, and other orthopedic issues. In less than a year, he has undergone 3 surgeries and takes Glucosamine and Chondroitin to support his joints and cartilage. He has been given Tramadol and Carprofen separately to deal with pain and inflammation and was scheduled to take medication for the rest of his life. daKota Blue was one drowsy puppy, but you can’t tell by looking at this Vine video. He now uses medical marijuana instead of drugs that would have destroyed his liver and kidneys. Does marijuana even work on animals? You bet it does! Cannabinoid receptors have been identified in most mammals, birds, amphibians, and even some species of fish. daKota Blue uses marijuana to control pain, arrest inflammation, and maintain a healthy appetite. He doesn’t smoke, vaporize, or swallow tinctures, but he eats baked treats with plain organic ingredients and Canna butter. Now his life is full again, and he takes regular trips to parks, lakes, and rivers. daKota Blue is a happy, thankful dog living in Las Vegas, Nevada. He still has to be limited on the amount of exercise he can enjoy with the other dogs in his pack, but his life has improved tremendously. Check him out on Vine @ Canna Consulting on Vine

Assemblyman Paul Aizley and Senator Tick Segerblom are speaking at the Women’s Democratic Club of Clark County Luncheon on November 14, 2013. They will be discussing Medical Marijuana Law at the Social Club at Main Street Station. The luncheon is from 11:30am to 1:00pm and tickets are $25 for members and $30 for guests.
Canna Consulting Services will be the guest speaker at this week’s Kiwanis Club of Las Vegas lunch meeting. We expect a fun, lively crowd with plenty of questions. The Kiwanis Club is an international organization of volunteers and the Las Vegas chapter has been meeting and changing lives since December of 1925. http://www.kiwaniscluboflasvegas.org The members of this organization have been instrumental in the growth of Las Vegas and it’s surrounding areas and we’re honored that they invited us to be guest speakers. We’ll be presenting, answering questions about medical marijuana, and giving away free booklets and information at the Kiwanis lunch meeting at Marie Callender’s at 8175 West Sahara Avenue this Wednesday, November 13, 2013 from 12:00 – 1:30pm.
On November 5, 2013 Ferndale, Jackson, and Lansing, Michigan voters approved the decriminalization for personal possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Ferndale approved the measure by 72% ! but don’t get caught with medical marijuana extractions in Michigan because People vs Carruthers published in July, 2013 set a precedent that excludes extractions from protections afforded to usable medical marijuana. Let’s hope that gets quickly overturned or another case gets tried which could set that record straight.
Portland, Maine voters passed Question 1 on Nov 5 with 70% approval to decriminalize possession of up to 2 ½ ounces of marijuana for anyone over 21 within their city limits. In other parts of Maine, penalties for possession of up to 2 ½ ounces are strictly civil fines. Maine passed laws allowing for the use of medical marijuana in 1999 and passed additional initiatives in 2009 which allows for medical marijuana dispensaries. Sound familiar ? Let’s hope Nevada proceeds in a similarly successful manner.
In New Jersey, Governor Christie signed a bill on Nov 5 which allows dispensaries to now grow more than 3 strains of marijuana and allows them to produce marijuana edibles – but only for sale to legal guardians of children and under the guidance of two physicians. Governor Christie vetoed the elimination of the 2 physician requirement for patients under 18.
Proposition AA passed on Nov 5 in Colorado allows for a 25% tax on the legalized sale of marijuana for recreational use. Millions of additional tax dollars for the state can now flood in. 15% will be allocated for school construction and 10% for regulation, prevention, and abuse education. This increase in revenue is in addition to current taxes being collected for medical marijuana sales in Colorado. 11 other cities and 1 county also imposed additional local taxes on the sale of marijuana for recreational use. The 25% tax increase for the recreational use of marijuana at current prices would add approximately $50 to the $200 per ounce average price. The Colorado Legislative Counsel estimates almost $70 million annually in new revenues from this additional 25% tax. That calculates to an additional $280 million in marijuana sales for recreational use every year. Colorado will collect large sums of money for the combined medical and recreational use of marijuana and this legalization and taxation of marijuana in Colorado could set a great example for other states to follow.
The Las Vegas 2013 Walk to end Alzheimer’s helped raise thousands of dollars for Alzheimer’s support, care, and research. This year we walked at the Fashion Show Mall with many supporters and people cheering all through the mall. Medical marijuana holds great promise in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The United States Government obtained Patent #6630507 in October of 2003 which specifically states that #cannabinoids have been found to be useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases.

A great big THANK YOU to Findlay Toyota for hooking us up with a 4-pack of tickets to last night’s Clippers vs Nuggets pre-season game at the Mandalay Bay. It was a close game with the Clippers winning 118 – 111 in overtime. We were so close to the court ! with great tickets on the ground level, row C.

Canna Consulting Services is thankful to have the opportunity to network with members of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce. The “Morning Mingle” breakfast event was fantastic. There were representatives from the welcoming committee, ambassadors, speakers, and people from all aspects of the business community. The food was amazing! It was provided by the host, Spring Hill Suites on Paradise Road. What a great learning and networking opportunity.
Canna Consulting Services is working to bridge the gap between licensed Physicians and Patients with chronic or debilitating medical conditions. Many seniors in the Las Vegas valley do not know where they can go for referral into the state of Nevada medical marijuana program. This greatly reduces their health care options and often leaves them limited to pharmaceutical drugs, which can bind their nutrition and lead to other complications. Licensed M.D’s and D.O’s are invited to become a member of Canna Consulting Services Free Physician Referral Program.
