HENDERSON (KSNV — The city of Henderson is throwing its hat into the medical marijuana ring, one year after state law made it a possibility.

The city took its first steps Tuesday night, laying out a framework during a public hearing.

The hearing moved five medical marijuana dispensary slots closer to reality in Henderson.

However, as opposed to Clark County — which took the reins of the vetting process and handpicking applicants — Henderson is placing that responsibility on the state to rank the best qualified.

Applicants in Henderson can expect to shell out more money to open a business than other cities in the state. Henderson also goes beyond state requirements when it comes to zoning — even taking into account water conservation.

Tuesday’s action was only an introduction of proposed bills. The city is scheduled to vote July 1. If approved, Henderson could begin taking applications as early as July 7. That would be one day after the city’s moratorium on medical marijuana expires.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
