Two more retail marijuana dispensaries may open in Carson City after the Board of Supervisors upheld their previous approval of a new ordinance changing the number of retail establishments permitted in the city from two to four.
Last month, a 3-2 vote carried the first reading of the new ordinance forward. Thursday, supervisors followed their previous votes on the second reading, with Stacey Giomi and Lisa Schuette voting no once again.
“I’m not for adding two more, and I won’t vote for it,” said Giomi.
The applicant behind the ordinance, Las Vegas-based Qualcan, previously proposed another dispensary in south Carson but couldn’t proceed under city code, which capped the number of retail establishments to two and required they be co-located within existing medical marijuana establishments.

Giomi said he’s concerned about the drive-through service.
