The Las Vegas Paiute Tribe announced that it is partnering with Ultra Health, a medical marijuana production business based in Scottsdale, Arizona, to open two dispensaries and a cultivation facility in Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Ultra Health operates seven other facilities in New Mexico and Arizona.

The dispensaries and cultivation site will cost around $5 million, and should be finished before the end of year, KTNV reported.
