News - May 22, 2019

"It is a significant issue, especially in southern Nevada. The vast majority of our customers at Planet 13 are tourists and they are here visiting. Under current regulations, they are permitted to buy (marijuana) product but there is no legal venue for them to use product. It is an issue that we all recognized and an issue that needs to be resolved." Bob Groesbeck, co-CEO for Las Vegas' Planet 13, the world's largest legal/recreational marijuana retail store

Tolles wants Legislature to take 'holistic approach' to minimum-wage debate
News - May 2, 2019

"I appreciate where people are coming from ... because they are trying to address the needs of the vulnerable and provide more of a living wage.

We have to face the reality that more and more jobs are being automated." Assemblywoman Jill Tolles, R-Reno

Supreme Court Justice Hardesty all in with Legislature's overhaul of criminal justice system
News - April 24, 2019

James Hardesty, Nevada Supreme Court justice
