West Wendover’s City Council approved licenses for two cannabis grow sites in advance of the border town potentially launching recreational marijuana sales by the end of the year, FOX 13 reports.

The Nevada city — just across Utah’s western border — approved permits for a cannabis cultivation facility for Harvest of Nevada, expected to begin operations next year. The council also recently approved an expansion for Deep Roots Harvest, which is building a marijuana grow site and dispensary, according to FOX 13, citing city council minutes.

Deep Roots Harvest should open “in a few months.”
