Medical Marijuana & Recreational Marijuana in Nevada
Because medicinal marijuana is legal in Nevada, the lines are blurry for residents and visitors. While medicinal marijuana is legal, obtaining marijuana remained unlawful in Nevada until 2017. Our attorneys have ample experience with this area of law.
In November 2016, Nevada residents also voted to decriminalize recreational marijuana. The new laws are effective as of January 1, 2017 and would allow adults (21 years or older) to purchase, cultivate, possess, or consume up to one ounce of marijuana and to grow up to six marijuana plants at a time.
While marijuana use, regardless of the purpose, is still prohibited under federal law, the legalization of marijuana first for medical use and now for recreational use has created an opening in the law for residents of Nevada. The new law has yet to be challenged, and it is advisable to be sure you familiarize with the law and any limitations to ensure you stay in compliance.
