Nevada lawmakers check out Colorado’s marijuana industry

Nevada lawmakers who took a fact-finding trip to Colorado over the weekend say they were impressed to see the state’s recreational marijuana industry in action.

Democratic Sen. Tick Segerblom said the trip to the Denver area on Friday and Saturday was a positive experience for the group and a reminder that Nevada needed to get moving on similar regulation.

The bipartisan delegation of lawmakers met with their counterparts from Colorado and toured businesses that cultivate and sell marijuana.

The trip comes less than two years before voters will decide whether to legalize recreational marijuana in Nevada, which already allows for medical marijuana.

Republican Sen. Patricia Farley helped organize the trip. She said her goal was to gather information that could shape bills this session dealing with Nevada’s medical marijuana industry.
