Major backlog for U.S. Immigration Court in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- President Obama will be in a familiar place in the valley Friday. The president is expected to be at Del Sol High School, the same place where he laid out his blue print for immigration changes nearly two years ago.

That plan never got out of Congress, but Thursday night, President Obama laid out new expansive executive actions on immigration. The new plan will spare nearly 5 million people in the U.S. illegally from deportation and refocus enforcement efforts on "felons, not families."

In the meantime, Nevada is definitely high on the list of states that have illegal immigrants. Pew Researchers did a study which revealed Nevada has the highest share of undocumented immigrants of any state. The study also found one in six Nevadan children have at least one parent who is in the country illegally.

Euphoria Wellness takes security measures for marijuana dispensary

LAS VEGAS -- Nevadans are just months away from being able to legally buy medical marijuana, so dispensaries are popping up in many areas around the valley.

Managers at Euphoria Wellness near Jones Blvd. and Robindale Road said although they're excited to open, there's still a lot of things that need to be done.

They said they still need a final building inspection, along with a business license. Euphoria Wellness said it also needs to construct dozens of security measures to prevent break-ins.

“We buzz them in through the bullet-proof glass to the retail area,” said Joe Lamarca, Euphoria Wellness Owner. "They will then be able to make their selection as to what kind of marijuana they want and that will be dependent upon the diagnosis of their doctor. There are different kinds for anxiety and a different kind for seizures.”

After selections are made, patients will have to go up to a sales counter to pay.
