SPARKS, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Sparks City Council members have voted to take the first step in planning the future of medical marijuana dispensaries.

At Monday's city council meeting, council members gave staff direction to go ahead and begin working on amendments to municipal codes and consider rezoning efforts. Right now, it is just the research stage. Council members will do their homework, and present their ideas to the planning commission.

City Planner Armando Ornelas says it is a series of steps, and it could take at least 3-4 months. "It's better to start the ball rolling sooner rather then later. When the state starts accepting business license applications, the applicant must provide an exact location."

Ornelas expects the state to starting accepting applications this summer. He also says there will be multiple facilities, not just the retail location, and the city needs to consider cultivation facilities, which would probably best be suited in the industrial area of Sparks.

Members will discuss the business license process at the next city council meeting.

I am chronically in pain from a serious medical disorder, and several doctors I have seen have been encouraging as to the overall advantages and greater effectiveness of cannabis/THC over hit-and-more-often miss pharmaceuticals with crazy side effects. If anyone finds anything better than these natural plants which happen to be used recreationally by some (I personally quit drinking altogether about 12 years ago and as an adult I've abstained completely from weed for long periods as well when I was healthy) bbut for a patient in need of constant pain relief daily- it works. Better than the other stuff. Better than any other medicine.
