Conflict between state, county could affect medical marijuana dispensaries

LAS VEGAS -- Medical marijuana stores could be up and running in the valley as soon as January; but that doesn't mean a lot of dispensaries will open when that happens.

In all, only 40 dispensaries are allowed to open across the valley. Eighteen of those will be in unincorporated Clark County.

Local commissioners chose 18 applications, but the state only approved 10 of them, so this has caused disagreements between Clark County Commissioners, and the state, which is causing a hold up.

In the end, this may cause fewer dispensaries to open up.

"I guess that's a potential. I certainly hope it doesn't come to that because ultimately who is going to suffer -- the patient,” said Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commissioner.

Commissioner Sisolak said he's hesitant to grant permits to applicants the state chose without getting approval from the county first.

Major backlog for U.S. Immigration Court in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- President Obama will be in a familiar place in the valley Friday. The president is expected to be at Del Sol High School, the same place where he laid out his blue print for immigration changes nearly two years ago.

That plan never got out of Congress, but Thursday night, President Obama laid out new expansive executive actions on immigration. The new plan will spare nearly 5 million people in the U.S. illegally from deportation and refocus enforcement efforts on "felons, not families."

In the meantime, Nevada is definitely high on the list of states that have illegal immigrants. Pew Researchers did a study which revealed Nevada has the highest share of undocumented immigrants of any state. The study also found one in six Nevadan children have at least one parent who is in the country illegally.
