LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials are grappling with how to limit advertisements for marijuana at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport.

Clark County commissioners on Tuesday discussed a proposed ordinance that would ban cannabis ads at the airport. But its language raised some concerns as it could be applied to taxis with advertisements that go through the airport every day.

Commissioners and the head of the county’s aviation department agreed that no ads for the drug should be placed on airport property. But officials moved to hold the issue and asked the district attorney’s office and the aviation department to refine the ordinance’s language.
