LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Clark County has named the 18 companies it will recommend to the state as the best candidates to open medical marijuana dispensaries.
Friday's announcement follows the third day of medical marijuana hearings held by commissioners.
It started out with pitches from 14 applicants with proposed businesses in the Spring Valley area.
Commissioners then spent nearly an hour selecting the best out of a total of 79 candidates.
About 200 people packed the Clark County commission chambers as applicants anxiously waited to hear if they had been chosen.
The voting process was complicated and commissioners struggled to come to a consensus on some applicants after listening to three days of business pitches.
After the first round 10 business moved on, including CW Nevada LLC, which would provide a Charlotte’s Web strain of medical marijuana for children.
Four applicants made the cut in the second round.
More than 80 proposals were received by county officials. The commission conducted interviews starting Wednesday. The county planned to approve just 18 applicants for dispensaries in unincorporated areas of the county.
Each of the 81 applicants had a public hearing, giving neighbors a chance to testify for or against each proposal. Commissioners intended for the process to keep a tight schedule.
Applicants had have six minutes to make their cases. Each member of the public testifying on an individual dispensary application had two minutes.
The 18 applicants below have been approved. All must still be approved by the state later this summer.
