Legal Pot In NV Just A Matter Of Time

Some Feel It's Only A Matter Of Time Before Pot Is Legal In NV
Mar 14, 2005

The push to legalize marijuana in Nevada hasn't gotten far up at the state capital. An assembly panel declined to vote on the initiative which will put the issue on the November 2006 ballot. Despite that move today in Carson City, News 3's Ben Correa tells us why one Las Vegan thinks it's only a matter of time before pot is legal in the Silver State.

Pierre Werner is a medical marijuana user and a pot provider. Werner says when this issue goes in front of voters, he's pretty confident it will pass, legalizing possession of up to one ounce of marijuana. Pierre Werner's home is surrounded by marijuana. "You will find plants, pretty much in every room."

Werner says he's bipolar and pot is his medicine. He can legally smoke the stuff everyday because he's registered in the state's medical marijuana program. "Law enforcement needs to be concerned about murders, rapists and robbers, not plant huggers."

Werner also sells marijuana to other registered patients in the state. It's part of the business he owns, a business that will also connect people with doctors that recommend marijuana for medical use. This is what one ounce of marijuana looks like, and could be legal if voters approve the initiative in 2006.

Werner is now trying to open up a California-style cannabis club in Las Vegas. He says it's an idea that could be a big money maker for Nevada. "The tourism on this would be incredible. Tax revenue would shoot through the roof, funding education and law enforcement as well."

Werner has had a couple run-ins with the law. A few years back, he went to prison in New Jersey after being convicted of conspiring to distribute 170 pounds of marijuana. Under state law, registered medical marijuana users are allowed to grow up to seven plants for their personal use.
