Nevada Dispensary Association Exec: ‘Cannabis Industry Is Hugely Important To Our Recovery’

The association promotes a safe and regulated industry in Nevada

As the new executive director of the Nevada Dispensary Association, Layke Martin will be tasked with overseeing governmental affairs and public outreach for the group that represents dispensaries throughout the state.

The association promotes a safe and regulated industry in Nevada, where recreational marijuana use has been legal since July 2017.

Martin comes from the UNLV Boyd School of Law, where she was the assistant dean for external relations and in charge of fundraising, communications and career development. She also taught public policy and leadership courses.

Martin, a native Las Vegan, previously spent five years practicing business litigation. In 2015, she was named “Young Lawyer of the Year” by the State Bar of Nevada.

Martin’s background, especially her time at UNLV, helped prepare her for this new challenge. She replaced Riana Durrett, who was named to the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board by Gov. Steve Sisolak.
