Correction: Recreational Marijuana-West Wendover story
WEST WENDOVER, Nev. (AP) — In a story Nov. 22 about recreational marijuana sales in West Wendover, Nev., The Associated Press reported erroneously that West Wendover City Councilwoman Kathy Durham made the request to reintroduce a measure allowing the sales. Councilwoman Jasie Holm made the request.

Legal recreational pot headed to approval in West Wendover
Legal recreational marijuana sales are on the way to final approval in West Wendover on the Utah line, where the city council already has agreed to a medical marijuana dispensary
WEST WENDOVER, Nev. (AP) — Legal recreational marijuana sales are on the way to final approval in West Wendover on the Utah line, where the city council already has agreed to a medical marijuana dispensary.
The Elko Daily Free Press reported Thursday the West Wendover City Council voted 3-2 on Tuesday to prepare a draft ordinance allowing recreational sales. The first reading will be at the Dec. 4 council meeting and second reading on Dec. 18.
Mayor Daniel Corona says the marijuana sales will create 38 local jobs. Earlier this year, Corona vetoed a council move to block recreational marijuana sales.
The request to reintroduce the measure allowing the sales came from Councilwoman Jasie Holm.
One of the councilmen who had opposed recreational use, John Hanson, was defeated in the November election.
