LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Today marks the first deadline for people hoping to own and operate medical marijuana dispensaries in Clark County.

Potential operators had to submit paperwork for a preliminary review, the first step in many to getting a license for a dispensary.

As of 7 p.m., the Clark County Business License Department had received a total of 206 submissions for Medical Marijuana Establishments from 92 different legal entities.

The submissions were as follows:

  • Cultivation - 70
  • Dispensary - 90
  • Laboratory - 1
  • Production - 45
  • TOTAL - 206

The application process is not cheap; it costs $10,000 just to get started, with a $5,000 application fee going to the county, and another $5,000 fee to the state.

Commissioner Steve Sisolak tells us what happens to the applications now.

"When selecting who is going to move forward with these applications, and I don't do that lightly, I want to know who the applicants are, what their histories are, and what they're going to bring to the table in terms of expertise and the ability to function as a cultivation center or dispensary," Sisolak said.

The next deadline in the process of distributing medical marijuana dispensary licenses comes on May 2.

That's for people seeking a special use permit.
