Clark County Council votes to lift marijuana ban

Jake Thomas | July 2, 2019

The Clark County Council voted 3-2 to lift its ban on recreational cannabis businesses in unincorporated areas of the county at its Tuesday evening meeting. Recreational sales can begin in unincorporated areas of Clark County as early as Jan. 1, 2020.

The vote came after a roughly 1 1/2 -hour hearing where the council heard primarily from proponents of the ban who argued that the adverse social effects of making the drug easier to access would outstrip any revenue generated from its sale. They also heard from critics of the ban who said that prohibition has failed and the legal cannabis industry provides jobs and opportunity.
