LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) — Local medical marijuana patients will soon be able to buy a much tastier version of their doses. Nevada Pure a dispensary starts selling their new line of gummy bears and candies next week.
Kathy Gillespie was already a successful business owner when she decided to infuse cannabis into sweet gooey confections. “Barbara and I must of lost 20 of our closest friends to HIV. They just withered away and died,” says Gillespie. Which is why she opened up shop hoping she could help patients.
“I feel like we’re a whole company now. It makes me very emotional,” says Gillespie. Twenty-nine months in the making, Gillespie is finally able to provide a sweet edible alternative to pot patients who can’t light up.
