Any marijuana production or cultivation establishment that provides services to a city based marijuana establishment (medical or retail) will be required to apply for a business license and await City Council approval. See checklist, Outside city of Las Vegas Limits Production and Cultivation Establishment Checklist.
A marijuana support business, medical or retail, is one that provides goods or services to a marijuana establishment and receives at least fifty percent (50%) of its annual revenue from licensed marijuana establishments. Marijuana establishments include cultivation, production, dispensing and laboratory facilities. Businesses that qualify as a marijuana distributor transportation contractor are not considered retail marijuana support businesses. Find more information here, Medical Marijuana Support Business
