This month, The Source secured the necessary privilege license from Nye County to allow for the opening of Pahrump’s second pot dispensary and company officials are eagerly anticipating the start of business. Located at 2370 Homestead Road, near the intersection of Homestead and Highway 160, The Source’s dispensary will soon offer competition to the valley’s first marijuana retailer, The Grove, with a target opening date set for July.
The project has been in the works for nearly three years. Nevada Organic Remedies, which owns and operates The Source, initially secured a Nye County special use permit in mid-2019 but a lawsuit against the state of Nevada regarding the marijuana industry resulted in delays. Once the lawsuit was cleared, The Source faced additional challenges in the form of the pandemic, followed by supply chain issues and startling increases in the cost of construction materials. The company never abandoned its vision for a Pahrump store, however, and it was able to officially break ground at the site in late 2021.
The Source Chief Commercial Officer Brandon Wiegand told the Nye County Commission at its May 17 meeting that he and the company were quite excited to be expanding operations in the valley.
