LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials have received at least 178 applications from people seeking to start medical marijuana-related businesses in Clark County.

The Clark County Business License Department announced the totals 90 minutes before a 5 p.m. Tuesday submission deadline.

The number includes 60 applications related to cultivation, 77 in the dispensary category, one in the laboratory category and 40 in production.

Clark County became the first municipality in southern Nevada to accept applications for marijuana-related businesses after approving regulations last month.

Nevada voters approved medical marijuana in 2000, but that law provided no legal way for patients to obtain the drug except to grow it themselves.

Legislators passed a law in 2013 that sets up a framework for distributing medical marijuana, although it allows cities and counties to impose moratoriums.
