First Nevada Marijuana Dispensary on the Idaho Line Authorized to Open.
ELKO, Nevada (AP) – Nevada’s first marijuana dispensary on the Idaho border has been cleared to open in the rural town of Jackpot in Elko County.
The Elko Daily Free Press reports that the Elko County Commission unanimously approved a business license for Thrive Cannabis Marketplace this week after authorities confirmed that dispensary workers had passed background checks.
More comes despite opposition from county commissioners on the Idaho side of the line. A representative from the dispensary told the Elko County Commission that they could be ready to open Monday.
The store is about 65 miles north of Wells and 45 miles south of Twin Falls, Idaho.
