Aug. 26, 1999, Carson City, NV: Before Nevada voters return to the polls in 2000 to reaffirm their support for medical marijuana, the Nevada Pharmacy Board wants to know how the state will obtain and distribute marijuana to patients. 
Nevadans gave initial approval to the medical marijuana initiative (Question 9) in 1998 but because this initiative is being offered as an amendment to the state constitution, it must be approved by the voters in two consecutive elections.   Keith Macdonald, executive secretary of the Nevada Pharmacy Board, will ask the Board of Medical Examiners later this month to conduct a study on how to implement the medical marijuana initiative.   Macdonald, an opponent of the medical marijuana initiative, said the state should further study valid uses for marijuana in medicine.   "We need to decide who is going to get it and how it is going to be contained so we don't get in a mess like in our sister state to the West," Macdonald said referring to the number of California buyers clubs that formed after Proposition 215 passed in 1996.   "Mr. Macdonald should know that buyers clubs still exist in California and they are protected under state law," said Allen St. Pierre, NORML Foundation Executive Director. "Also, in Washington and Oregon specifically, the voter-approved medical marijuana initiatives are operating as planned, with doctors making recommendations to their patients who need marijuana."   For more information, please contact Allen St. Pierre, NORML Foundation Executive Director at (202) 483-8751.

medical marijuana
The people of Nevada have spoken! TWICE! And still we have no plan for distribution of medical marijuana and few doctors who aren't afraid to prescribe it if a plan does come along. I feel like I am living in the 1930's movie "Reefer Madness".You would think a state that allows gambling enev at the corner store, freely distributes alcohol to everyone, and even has legal prostitution would be more realistic and tolerant of responsible use of herbs including marijuana. Get real! If marijuana was decriminalized and controlled and taxed like alcohol to adults only we could eliminate the national debt in short order. Lets all get our heads out --- and use them. What ever happened to democracy? THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN! LISTEN!
