CONSUMPTION

It is currently illegal for adults 21 and over and medicinal patients to consume marijuana in any of these locations:
  • In public, which includes any local dispensary property, neighboring bus stop, the ballpark, Riverwalk and any other public setting, including anywhere outside in the downtown entertainment district.
  • While driving and/or operating heavy machinery.
  • In ANY and ALL casinos, hotels, motels or restaurants.
  • At public events including Sculpture Fest, River Fest, Street Vibrations and any and all local events. At this time, marijuana can only be legally consumed on private property or in the privacy of your own home.
  • Subsidized housing. It is illegal to consume on the property of subsidized housing.

NEVADA MEDICAL
MARIJUANA PROGRAM

The Nevada Legislature approved medicinal marijuana in 2001. Patients with a valid medical marijuana card supplied through the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program are eligible to purchase up to one ounce per transaction or the equivalent in concentrates at any Nevada-licensed dispensaries. They can possess up to 2.5 ounces at one time and purchase edibles or marijuana-infused products that are over the 100 mg limit in place for adult-use marijuana products. Nevada also has reciprocity and will accept valid medical marijuana cards from other states that have enacted medical marijuana laws. Non-cardholders 21 years and older can purchase an ounce of flower or 3.5 grams of concentrate per transaction, which also constitute the legal limits for adults 21 and over. Patients are protected against state prosecution for possession, production or delivery of marijuana, as well as possession of paraphernalia. The law also protects non-cardholders found in the vicinity of someone legally consuming marijuana.

LOCATION

There are no workplace protections provided under Nevada’s current medical marijuana law. If your company prohibits marijuana, you can be reprimanded or fired should you test positive and it should not be consumed at or in your place of employment.

TRAVEL & MAIL

It is illegal to travel with marijuana, even if you have a medical marijuana patient card and purchased it legally at a dispensary. It is also illegal to ship medical marijuana through the U.S. Postal Service, even if you have a patient card.

Driving background

DRIVING

Driving impaired, whatever the substance, is also illegal. At this time, the same laws that apply to driving under the influence of alcohol apply to driving under the influence of marijuana.

If you recently consumed marijuana in any form, you should not drive or operate heavy machinery for 6 to 8 hours or more. If using heavier or stronger, more concentrated edibles, you may need a longer time period because Everone’s body processes and metabolizes marijuana differently, which means your body may feel the effects for a longer or shorter period and could depend on: the frequency in which you consume marijuana, whether you had an empty stomach, just ate a meal – or if you’re properly hydrated. Play it safe and take an Uber/Lyft/taxi or walk if you’re not 100% sure. It’s not worth it and you don’t want to be driving impaired!

NRS 453D.400 VIOLATIONS AND PENALTIES

Avoid the legal ramifications from consuming marijuana illegally, follow the law!

Be clear about penalties and violations to our current marijuana laws, which include fines, misdemeanor charges and felonies, depending on the violation. Public consumption is a $600 fine for the first offense.

By following the letter of the law, we can continue to garner the support we need from our community, local government and state government. Join us in being MYNDFUL in promoting the responsible, lawful consumption of marijuana in Nevada.
