Nevada Medical & Recreational Marijuana
In November of 2000, Nevada legalized medical marijuana. However, the state’s program did not go into effect until June 12, 2013, when the Governor signed SB 374 into law – a medical marijuana bill that established a state-regulated dispensary system. Cultivation, manufacturing, and dispensary licenses were awarded in 2014 and the medical marijuana facilities started opening in 2015.
Question 2, an Initiative on the November 2016 ballot to legalize recreational marijuana in Nevada, made it legal for adults age 21 and older to buy marijuana for recreational use, possess up to an ounce, and grow up to six plants at home – if that residence is more than 25 miles away from a licensed dispensary. The Department of Taxation is responsible for the registration and regulation of marijuana businesses.
