LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) — Nevada State Sen. Greg Brower, who voted for the creation of medical marijuana dispensaries in Nevada, now says he's having reservations.
Brower, a Washoe County Republican, says he has reservations because marijuana remains illegal under federal law.
State Sen. Tick Segerbloom, the law's prime sponsor, disagrees and says to those wanting to open a dispensary do not worry about the feds.
“When we started this a year ago, it was a concern because it wasn't clear,” Segerblom said. “But since then, the attorney general has come out very clearly and said we're not going to interfere with states. The president just said last week he doesn't think it's any worse than alcohol. Harry Reid has come out in support of medical marijuana.”
Currently, Las Vegas and Henderson have moratoriums on dispensaries until state regulations are set.
Brower hinted that the law could be repealed. He encouraged city and county leaders to let legislators know if they do not think the law will work.
