NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Medical marijuana is getting closer to becoming an industry in Clark County, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas.
Investors say it will generate much needed cash for local governments and public services, especially for the cash strapped city of North Las Vegas.
People arriving to North Las Vegas City Hall for a town hall meeting about the issue Tuesday have a lot of opinions and questions about medical marijuana, especially after North Las Vegas City Council decided to look into the prospect of dispensaries about two weeks ago.
Green-rush investors are looking for a gold mine and some say southern Nevada is already cashing in. Leslie Bocskor the co-founder of Nevada Cannabis Industry Association is one of those investors.
"Investing in real estate, hiring consultants, advisors, attorneys and other professional so it's been very good for the economy and we haven't even started," Bocskor said.
