Instead of waiting as long as three months for access to medical marijuana dispensaries, prospective Nevada patients can now be approved on the same day thanks to a new Las Vegas-based Division of Public and Behavioral Health office. For medical marijuana officials, that’s a step in the right direction to establishing a healthy and safe medical marijuana industry until more cannabidiol vendors come online.

“We wondered why it was taking so long and what we could do to help with the industry,” Durrett said. “Patients should be able to get medicine, either at the office or online.”

Officials say they’re working toward a system where a Nevada patient can complete the application and approval process online, and receive their cards without having to step foot in any state offices. Through a new online network, they will forward the approvals to the DMV, where cards will be linked to the patient’s address on file, and mailed with the same picture as their driver’s license.

The process, from the beginning of a patient’s application to the time they receive their medical marijuana cards in the mail, will take no longer than 10 days, Durrett said. In the interim, they’ll still be able to use their approval, issued the same day, for up to 60 days.

    Although it was in the year of 2015 the first legal medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas was started but the only thing the patients found it uneasy was that the money which they were paying for these products were excluding the tax, and that was the reason of uneasiness because without paying tax they used to get a feeling that something was going on illegal and by buying products from them, they were becoming or contributing towards this illegal act. Knowing all these consequences, Oasis Medical Cannabis was started and it was the first in the Las Vegas valley to offer prices including tax, which was up to 17 %, depending on the product.
