Delivery of recreational marijuana may soon be coming to Henderson

Updated October 15, 2020 - 7:55 pm

Delivery of recreational marijuana may soon be allowed in Henderson.

The City Council last week heard the introduction of an ordinance that would establish a license fee for marijuana delivery.

If the change is adopted at the next council meeting, a previous prohibition on delivering recreational marijuana will be repealed. The city already allows the delivery of medical marijuana.

Henderson temporarily allowed recreational marijuana delivery when COVID-19 forced businesses to shut down this year, according to city spokeswoman Kathleen Richards.

Formally changing the law would put Henderson in line with Las Vegas, Clark County and North Las Vegas, which allow the delivery of recreational marijuana.

If approved at Tuesday’s council meeting, the change would be scheduled to take effect Oct. 23.
