Henderson authorizes 4th medical marijuana dispensary

The Henderson City Council approved a medical marijuana dispensary Tuesday night that prepares to open on Eastern Avenue, south of the 215 Beltway.

The Source Henderson ends up being the 4th dispensary authorized in the city, three of which are within about two miles of each other.

None have actually opened yet. Clark County has only one dispensary in business, Ecstasy Wellness in the southwest Las Vegas Valley.

The state and Henderson’s city attorney didn’t fight the demand, with the state confessing had erred in granting approval to Wellness Connection. The city supported Henderson Organic getting state approval so city citizens would not be deprived of access to legal medicine.

After at first resisting, Wellness Connection’s owners surrendered their state certification in April.

Jim Rees on Hash Residence a Go Go: What is it– a Las Vegas strip joint or latest dispensary?

Editor’s Note: As Robin Leach returns to Las Vegas after holiday time in Italy and family time in La Jolla, Calif., we cover our visitor columns in his absence.

Today, words of wisdom from Jim Rees of Hash House a Go Go and the legendary ambassador of rum, the one and only Sailor Jerry, aka Paul Monahan. Here, Jim, who purchases 800,000 pounds of potatoes and 7 tons of bacon a year, serves a delicious dish as large as his restaurant menu products.

When Hash House a Go Go first pulled into town in 2005, few residents had actually heard of, much less tried, this extra Las Vegas dining establishment transplanted from San Diego. As a matter of reality, a lot of didn’t know what it was.

I guess the name “twisted farm food” didn’t truly assist, and few discovered the breakfast, lunch and supper in small print. But it had not been long prior to word went out that something was different about this free-standing dining establishment in exactly what was left of one of the early restaurant corners on the west side of town.

There is absolutely nothing more gratifying than a pleased visitor, and it’s usually a good sign when one of the first things a guest does is take a picture of his food when it shows up.

Little did we know 10 years ago that social networks would be the driving force that it is today, and it is often said– particularly when it come to our food– that a photo is worth a thousand words.

Flash forward 10 years, and the story is similar– the only difference is that we now have five Las Vegas Valley locations and 10 dining establishments across the country. Food is still the focus, and the portions are still generous.

Would you think 800,000 pounds of potatoes, 7 lots of bacon, 2 million eggs and 3 lots of rosemary are being served every year? Contribute to that 240,000 pounds of Certified Angus Beef, 350,000 pounds of chicken breast and 550,000 pounds of biscuit and pancake flour, and you can see how many hungry guests have had their cravings pleased.

Made from scratch like Mommy used making and served in charitable portions– so much so that leftovers are a sure thing– are the hallmarks of Hash Residence a Go Go.

So where did the name come from, and why call it twisted farm food? It’s really straightforward: “Hash Home” is a common name for a breakfast joint, and “a Go Go” is enjoyment of the food. Fundamental, identifiable home cooking served with style in charitable parts– much better referred to as twisted farm food.

Las Vegas was the best location for us to broaden our roots and really grow. After all, what better city for a terrific breakfast after a long night than Sin City? With a restricted marketing budget, the best method to spread the word was word of mouth.

Oh, the mornings I invested up at 5 a.m. delivering our food to radio and TELEVISION stations– and how welcoming the media was to the principle. We rapidly ended up being involved in as numerous local occasions as possible and stepped forward with charities to offer contributions and supply complimentary food at every possible event.

The community fasted to return the favor, voting us Best Breakfast, Finest Brunch, Best Burger, Best Restaurant and a lot more awards, which enabled us to grow and broaden.

However breakfast was not enough, and one of the amazing elements of the principle was that lunch and supper were simply as much enjoyable as breakfast. It’s constantly difficult to encourage individuals that you can have a fantastic breakfast and dinner restaurant.

With trademark items like fried chicken and waffles, packed meatloaf, hand-hammered pork tenderloin and fried green tomato stack, it was always a treat to hear a supper visitor ask the concern, “Are you open for breakfast?”

Hospitality is as important as the food, and I want our staff to enjoy their job so that they convey that feeling to their visitors. Relaxed, enjoyable and never knowing quite what to expect is something we work hard at attaining.

Maybe it’s a Saturday DJ breakfast, huge Bloody Mary with bacon, tomato and lettuce or a kids dish that can be delivered in a toy tractor (which likewise works as a giant beverage vessel for grownups).

We want visitors to feel at home and comfy, yet shock them with always-changing choices. When your dining establishment is the location where your visitors wish to bring their buddies to flaunt your dining establishment, it could not make a person prouder.

Thank you, Las Vegas!

That is exactly what operators of Silver State Relief in Triggers did to obtain up and running, said General Supervisor Aron Swan.

“We purchased harvest all set plants,” Swan said outside business soon prior to opening. The plants yielded about 14 pounds.

Spokesman Jim Ferrence, owner Deanne Lamb and owner Joe Lamarca of Euphoria Wellness, soon to be a medical marijuana dispensary. They hosted an open house Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014.Introduce slideshow “

Irritated by months of hold-ups, a medical marijuana dispensary is asking for internal Clark County records and threatening a lawsuit to obtain the store open.

Bliss Wellness, on Jones Boulevard near Robindale Road, passed state and county examinations in April and has been all set to open given that.

But the dispensary hasn’t had the ability to get marijuana since approved growing centers have actually been sluggish to start and have not produced a sensible batch.

Euphoria Wellness at first prepared to buy medical cannabis from cardholders currently accredited to grow their own plants till growing facilities were working.

But in a news conference today, Bliss lawyer Maggie McLetchie said the strategy has actually been derailed by the county business licensing department’s “extremely rigorous and ridiculous” analysis of state law.

“It seems designed to do nothing however slow us down,” McLetchie said of the county’s stance. “We have actually been incredibly frustrated with this procedure.”

Under state law, patients are permitted to have up to 12 cannabis plants but cannot have more than 2.5 ounces of useful marijuana.

The county has actually refused to enable Ecstasy to obtain more than 2.5 ounces of medical marijuana from any client, pointing out the law.

The dispensary has suggested that it ought to have the ability to acquire all 12 plants from clients– the equivalent of about 10 pounds of marijuana.

The stalemate has actually prevented Euphoria from getting any marijuana to offer and forced it to recently lay off 15 employees hired months earlier in anticipation of opening.

McLetchie also accused the county of adding conditions to Bliss’s business license that aren’t based in state law. For instance, the county is limiting the variety of pipelines and other marijuana consumption gadgets the dispensary can display.

On Tuesday, McLetchie filed a public records request seeking internal files she really hopes will shed light on whether the county has dealt with Euphoria’s application properly.

“We’re trying to get information about why there have actually been a lot of delays and exactly what basis there is for the numerous conditions that have been put on Bliss’s license,” she said.

Depending upon the content of the records, McLetchie said, additional legal action might be possible.

County spokesperson Erik Pappa said Ecstasy Wellness has been treated “fairly and in accordance with the law.”

“We’re going to supply all the public records they have actually sought. They have actually been treated fairly, and you’ll see that when you get the records,” Pappa said. “We expect them to follow state law, even if it’s troublesome to do so.”
