Here is a brief overview of the history of medical marijuana laws and legislation in Nevada:
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.
2001 – possession of marijuana in small amounts (less than 1 oz) was decriminalized
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.
2016 – voters finally voted (after 2 unsuccessful bills) to legalize recreational adult use.
July 1 2017 – recreational cannabis sales began
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.
Yes, we do. All of the doctors who work with Leafwell are licensed physicians within Nevada and experienced medical marijuana doctors. We’re committed to working with physicians who understand the value of medical cannabis and can help people interested in trying medical marijuana and providing medical support and guidance.
Patients in Nevada can cultivate medical marijuana if there is no dispensary in the county where they live or if there is no dispensary within 25 miles of their home address. If a dispensary is subsequently opened within these limits, a patient may continue to cultivate cannabis if they do not allow their registration to lapse.
Patients who are unable to travel due to illness of lack of transportation are also allowed to grow their own plants.
Finally, if the dispensaries which are available do not supply the strain of marijuana necessary for a specific medical condition, a patient is allowed to cultivate this strain for medical purposes.
