Poker superstar Phil Ivey has received preliminary approval for a vegas medical marijuana dispensary license in Nevada.
Phil Ivey isn’t smoking something, but their future customers may be: Ivey received one of 26 license that is preliminary for the medical marijuana dispensary through the vegas City Council previously this week, possibly making the poker superstar one of the first operators within the town to supply pot to consumers.
There are even more steps necessary before Ivey gets approval that is final open such a company, but his approval does suggest that the town found him qualified to move on in the licensing procedure.
This week to plead their cases for medical marijuana licenses about 50 potential operators went before the City Council. Those that got approval that is preliminary the town will now have to be approved by the state health department.
The City Council will fundamentally hold a suitability that is final for all approved by the state before awarding a limited number of licenses which have been set aside for Las Vegas.
Which means that Ivey still has a way that is long go before finding a final go-ahead to dispense medical marijuana in Sin City. But if he makes his way through the various licensing stages, Ivey might end up slinging weed just as prolifically as he makes pot-sized bets at the poker table.
