Devitt expects pot to dwarf those figures.

Marijuana is considered a drought-tolerant plant and doesn’t require a significant amount of water to grow, said Derek Peterson, president of Terra Tech, an agricultural company that’s applied for a marijuana cultivation license in Clark County. Terra Tech wants to open a 50,000-square-foot cultivation warehouse under a Las Vegas-based subsidiary called MediFarm LLC.

Early next month, Clark County commissioners will decide which of the 109 companies vying for medical marijuana licenses should be reviewed by the state Public and Behavioral Health Division. State approval would be provisional, and the county would decide whether to award business licenses.

If licensed, Peterson’s company would grow marijuana using hydroponics, widely considered the most environmentally friendly method of plant watering. In hydroponics, the plant absorbs only the water it needs and water is constantly recycled through the system. There’s no runoff and the only water lost is through evaporation.

Terra Tech has built cultivation facilities for marijuana companies in Colorado, Michigan, Washington and Massachusetts…
