   CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Fourteen years after Nevada made medicinal marijuana legal, the state is wrestling with a host of questions related to the emerging industry.
 
   Nevada gambling regulators decisively declared any involvement with the medical marijuana business to be off limits to those in the casino industry. The state Bar asked for guidance from the Nevada Supreme Court.
 
   Now the board in charge of licensing doctors and policing medical practices is trying to sort through its own list of issues, including determining what role if any physicians should be allowed to play in the business of growing and supplying marijuana.
 
   The state Board of Medical Examiners has asked the attorney general's office for an opinion ahead of its June meeting in Reno when it will discuss doctors investing in marijuana establishments.

Start working at home with Google. It’s a great work at home opportunity. Just work for few hours. I earn up to $500 a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Buzz95.com

Wise decision not allowing Casino Industry involvement into the MJ Industry. For many years I witnessed the Casino Industries policies to ignore selling and using of illegal drugs within their cadre and patrons. I've always asked myself where does the buck stop in dealing with criminal activities. Are we always going to be subjected to a Mustang Ranch mentality?
