What: Incline Business Network forum on planned NuLeaf marijuana dispensary

Where: Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe (Ballroom DEF), 111 Country Club Drive, Incline Village

When: 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 31

RSVP: Email

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — A public forum will be held next week to discuss what impacts Incline Village’s forthcoming medical marijuana dispensary may have on the local business community.

The Incline Business Network, which presents itself as being neutral on this issue, is hosting the free forum, in which featured panelists will give short presentations, followed by a Q-and-A with the audience.

As of this week, scheduled panelists include NuLeaf representatives Sean Luse and Sabrina Fendrick, Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jeff Clark, Nevada Sen. Tick Segerblom, and IBN members Susanna Kintz and Heidi Mitchel.

“The forum is specifically tailored to the concerns of the Incline business community,” Kintz said, and as such is open to any community business member. Meanwhile, members of the general public can also attend, space permitting.

NuLeaf plans to open a dispensary some time this spring at 877 Tahoe Blvd. The location is near several businesses, including Wildflower Café, Susie Scoops/Village Toys and Woodstove Distributors.

Residents have raised concerns about the dispensary, including a perception it will create crime and safety issues; its proximity to businesses that cater to youth; and the potential to decrease property values in Incline Village.

Those interested in attending the March 31 forum are strongly encouraged to reserve a seat by emailing

There is no RSVP deadline; however, reservations and available open seats will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis, Kintz said.
