(Las Vegas, NV) — Las Vegas councilman Steve Ross held a twitter chat yesterday. The topic was medical-marijuana dispensaries. He supports it for people who are sick.
Twitter chats are a new way of communicating with constituents and answering questions. Ross supports medical marijuana, he says the goal for him, is getting sick people some relief. He also says 86 percent of his Twitter followers support that too.
Ross says he’s not focusing on recreational use, but he does think full legalization will happen in a couple of years.
The city council is working on ordinances allowing ten medical marijuana dispensary licenses.
