Nevada official testifies that marijuana licensing process ‘fair’

Nevada’s top cannabis regulator defended in court the state’s handling of a recreational marijuana retail licensing round that occurred last year.

While not perfect, “the application process was a fair process,” said Jorge Pupo, head of Nevada’s marijuana enforcement division, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

Pupo’s testimony in Clark County District Court came this week in a case filed by about three dozen unsuccessful applicants who allege the process was flawed and biased, and want a do-over.

It is beautiful and for the people… not for big business that is destroying our country, especially the racketeering reprehensible Big Pharma factor that needs to be brought down and exposed (not just marijuana…autoimmune diseases (illegal tax breaks, lack of research because of and for the rapacious, strictly financial-driven practices and ridiculously exorbitant prices for drugs they waste our taxpayer money on advertising all day all over social media). Sorry to throw that in the mix, but the people need to be aware!
