Reno-Sparks Indian Colony to Open Two Cannabis Dispensaries with Drive-Thrus


Reno, Nevada (November 17, 2021) — The Reno Sparks Indian Colony (RSIC) announces the opening of 2 tribal cannabis dispensaries with drive-thrus in South Reno and Verdi, NV. Three Nations Cannabis, owned by RSIC, is expected to open both locations in January 2022.

Three Nations Cannabis will be a full-service dispensary with a drive-thru option at both locations. The dispensaries will have the largest selection of products, best quality, and best pricing. Products to include flower, vapes, edibles, pre-rolls, extract, tincture, plus more.

The South Reno dispensary is easily located off I-580 (Exit 61) at 11570 South Virginia Street; previously the Infiniti Car Dealership; and the Verdi dispensary is conveniently located off I-80 (Exit 2) at 420 Highway 40 West. Both locations are on tribal land. Both locations are near the tribe’s long-established Tribal Smoke Shop businesses.

The South Reno dispensary is approximately a 12,200 square foot facility, making this Three Nations Cannabis location the largest dispensary in Reno. The Verdi dispensary is a 2,700 square foot facility. Both facilities have been through a complete renovation and remodel to accommodate the tribal, state and county requirements for marijuana establishments.

Three Nations Cannabis dispensaries are also the 1st dispensaries in the Reno area to include a drive-thru service. With the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting all our lives, the drive-thru service demonstrates an emphasis on safety and provides a positive customer experience. This is how RSIC managed to keep the Tribal Smoke Shops open during the height of COVID-19.

RSIC will follow cannabis regulations in compliance with the Cannabis Agreement between the State of Nevada and the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony signed on January 29, 2020.  NRS 223.250 allows the Governor to enter into an agreement with any federally recognized Indian tribe located within the geographical boundaries of Nevada regarding Cannabis.

“Three Nations Cannabis enhances RSIC’s economic diversification strategy that will create well-paying jobs for both tribal members and the general public,” Chairman Arlan Melendez stated. “It will also help RSIC to invest resources into better elder care, education, health services, housing & infrastructure, language & culture, youth services; the opportunities are infinite.”

Three Nations Cannabis looks forward to welcoming new customers and delivering at every end of the cannabis experience spectrum.
