Guiding Clients Through Nevada’s Marijuana Laws

With the voter passage of the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act (Question 2) on November 8, 2016, Nevada joined a growing number of states legalizing the purchase, possession and consumption of recreational marijuana. Back in 2000, medical marijuana had already been legalized in the state for patients with qualifying conditions through a ballot initiative (Question 9 – the Nevada Medical Marijuana Act).

Although both recreational and medical marijuana are now legal in Nevada, the rules governing the cultivation, purchase and consumption of marijuana in the state are still restrictive and are likely to change over time.
