Sandoval: Marijuana clubs are a bad idea, could jeopardize Nevada

Gov. Brian Sandoval is not happy that pot clubs could be on Nevada's horizon.

An opinion released earlier this week by the Legislative Counsel Bureau suggested local governments could license businesses such as hotels and bars to allow on-site marijuana consumption, but the the governor said Tuesday that he disagreed with the opinion entirely.

"I am concerned with these establishments popping up piecemeal throughout the state with differing rules and regulatory structure," Sandoval said in an email Tuesday to the Reno Gazette-Journal. "I also question why legislation was proposed during the 2017 legislative session if legal authority already existed. Since passage of the initiative, I have called for Nevada’s regulatory structure to be responsible, restricted, and respected."

The opinion released by the bureau on Sunday does what Senate Bill 236, proposed by Sen. Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, could not do since the bill failed during this summer's session. The intent of the bill was to give hotels, restaurants, bars and concert venues the freedom to allow marijuana consumption at their establishments.

2. If bars need a liquor-license, why not issue cannabis-licenses?

3. Gee, I wonder if he is a Repubican?

Oh, I guess he is!

Seriously..... aren't there more important things to deal with?

And, you would think the state would welcome additional revenue generated by a license.

Oh, I forgot, Repugs want less government regulation in our life.... (unless it interferes with their individual hypocritical and misplaced moral judgements against the rest of us).
