Printing Business Could Go Up in Smoke
LAS VEGAS—In a never-ending quest to offer more ancillary products and services than its competitors, a printer here may start branching out in a new, more mellow direction: dope.
It seems A&B Printing, based here, has not been experiencing growth, so owner Kathy Gillespie has sought to get into another growing business by applying to open a medical marijuana dispensary. She is paying the $5,000 application fee to become one of the 10 allotted dispensaries in Clark County.
“The printing industry is not growing. It’s not a growing business,” Gillespie told KVVU-TV 5. “We very much are interested in getting in on the ground floor and will be applying (for dispensary and cultivation licenses).”
Gillespie’s mother, as well as the mother of her partner, both battled cancer. She feels access to the medical marijuana would have eased her mother’s pain.
Gillespie, who hopes to eventually operate in two locations, would like to get out of the printing business completely and feels her facility could be converted into a dispensary.
