I still don't understand why Nevada reportedly isn't in the running.

Maybe because the FedGov owns more of Nevada than the state of Nevada does?

I found a report (previous link) that says the marijuana laws are too strict in NV. Gosh, that doesn't bother me - - my idea of freedom is low taxes, and NV is right-on on that score. Hope the free staters don't get diverted by secondary issues.

Yup, 97% of the land is owned by the federal government. Additionally, the state government is owned by the gaming industry and a large percentage of the population is working for that industry.
