Frequently Asked Questions

Nevada Medical Marijuana Laws – Overview and History

2000 – Medical marijuana is legalized via Ballot Question 9. Those with a valid medical marijuana recommendation and written certification by a physician may use, grow and possess cannabis.

2001 – Assembly Bill 453 creates a state registry of medical marijuana cardholders and those with a recommendation by their physician.

2013 – Governor Brian Sandoval signs Senate Bill 374 (SB 374), allowing dispensaries to cultivate or dispense marijuana, or to manufacture edibles or marijuana-infused products.

2013 – Restrictions are also placed on those who grow their own cannabis, being allowed to do so only until 2016. However, those who live 25 miles or more away from a dispensary and/or are growing a strain not provided by their closest dispensary may grow their own, up to 12 plants.

Patients may have one recognized caregiver. Both patient and caregiver must be aged 18 or older to apply for a medical marijuana card for themselves.

Medical marijuana patients may possess up to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana on their person.

Dispensaries are operational.

Nevada has reciprocity with all other states.

There is no penalty for possession or gifting of up to 1 ounce of cannabis or 3.5 g (⅛) of concentrate.

Possession of more than 1 ounce or use in public is considered a misdemeanor and can land a person a $600 fine.

Cultivation of fewer than 12 plants is allowed. However, those who live near a dispensary may be restricted in the amount and type of cannabis they can grow.

Sale of more than 1 ounce without a license brings a mandatory minimum sentence of 1 year. In fact, breaking any of Nevada’s marijuana laws will bring a mandatory sentence of at least one year, so it’s wise to stay within possession limits!

Medical marijuana patients must be aged 18 or older. Recreational users must be aged 21 or over.

Caregivers must be aged 18 or over. Patients may only have one designated caregiver.
