Steve Sisolak on Drugs
Marijuana industry to be critical part of economy
One of those sectors is the rapidly growing marijuana industry. That's why I'm announcing that I will sign an Executive Order creating Nevada's first-ever Cannabis Compliance Board, which will ensure this critical
part of our state's future economy is positioned to become a gold standard for the nation. We will manage and grow this new industry strictly and fairly and in a way the State can be proud of.

Fight federal intrusion into state marijuana industry
Q: Should marijuana be decriminalized at federal level?
Adam Laxalt (R): "An issue for our federal representatives to address." The only Attorney General in a state with legalization not to ask feds to ease related banking prohibitions.
Steve Sisolak (D): Would fight federal intrusion into state marijuana industry. Also, erase misdemeanor marijuana convictions and enforce current state rules to make NV "the gold standard in the cannabis industry."

Nevada should set gold standard for legal pot
A weed control board could oversee regulations and the fines and fees associated with breaking them within the county. Sisolak agreed with the idea of a board to help with disciplinary issues. Has dissatisfaction with what he sees as "slaps on
the wrist" for businesses skirting the law or trying to push the boundaries of what is permissible in terms of events and promotion. "We are the gold standard for gaming, and I want to be the gold standard in the cannabis industry," he said.
