The Henderson City Council approved a medical marijuana dispensary Tuesday night that plans to open on Eastern Avenue, south of the 215 Beltway.
The Source Henderson becomes the fourth dispensary approved in the city, three of which are within about two miles of each other.
None have opened yet. Clark County has only one dispensary in business, Euphoria Wellness in the southwest Las Vegas Valley.
Andrew Jolley, the co-owner and CEO of The Source’s parent company, said the dispensary plans to apply for building permits in a few weeks and could be open by the new year.
“Our partner owns the shopping center,” Jolley told the council with a smile. “That always helps.”
The Source, which is owned by Henderson Organic Remedies LLC, originally missed the cut when the state ranked dispensary applicants. It came in sixth, and only five dispensaries were allotted for Henderson.
But another dispensary, Wellness Connection, was forced to withdraw plans to open a dispensary near the Galleria at Sunset mall.
