Railroad Valley Nevada raid

On September 29th, 2017, Nye County Sheriffs Office raided an illegal grow operation and confiscated approximately 2,385 marijuana plants.

The two suspects got away on foot, but according to the sheriff’s deputies, they recovered DNA evidence at the campsite. (shades of CSI).

Unlike TV, running that DNA shouldn’t take more than a few months.

Of course, according to TV, a crime lab only needs a handful of warm bodies, all of whom are experts in everything. –So when you’re staring at the boob-tube, remember to suspend disbelief.

Back to reality.

It turns out that the cops broke with tradition and didn’t burn all that weed. Instead they turned to their trusty backhoe and buried it in an undisclosed location, under several feet of sand and gravel.

Ah well, now it’s just another lost treasure buried somewhere in the desert.

This is a good picture of why they chose Railroad Valley. –See, Nowhere, middle of.

Nevada Gaming Commission Says No Marijuana in Casinos

Nevada Gaming Commission has reiterated their stand on using marijuana in casinos. It ain’t going to happen.
They also said that gaming licensees:

    Should not maintain business relationships with marijuana companies, including landlord-tenant arrangements.
    Should be discouraged from hosting shows or conferences that promote the use, sale, cultivation or distribution of marijuana.
    Should not receive financing from or provide financing to an individual, entity or establishment that sells, cultivates or distributes marijuana.

They also said that casinos cannot do business with the wife or husband involved in the marijuana industry.

No vote was taken so there’s more to come in the next few months.

I’m not certain how long it will be before we become active, but we will get there.

In the meantime, here’s a thought:
