About Cannabis in Nevada

What happens in Las Vegas doesn’t have to stay there anymore as far as cannabis is concerned, with Nevada allowing both recreational and medicinal use. The Battle Born state is so progressive that Clark County just approved yet another drive-thru cannabis dispensary, making picking up product easier, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal. With an unanimous commissioner vote, officials from the unincorporated county said it had to be done due to COVID-19.

“Commissioner Tick Segerblom said the pandemic proved that regular operation of a dispensary without a drive-thru option is limiting for many people,” reports the Las Vegas news source. “As a state senator, Segerblom spearheaded the effort to legalize recreational marijuana in Nevada.”

And this isn’t the first time they made purchasing cannabis by car available, first legalizing it in 2017. NuWu, a cannabis mega-store built on Las Vegas Paiute tribal lands, made it possible three years ago since customers said it was time, according to Kevin Clock. 

What was once a bank vault window is now opening to serve dozens of dispensary customers. Since 2017, Nevada, with both legal recreational and medicinal use, and ten other U.S. states walk a fine line in manufacturing and selling cannabis for notably different uses. 

“The cost of cannabis is drastically different between medical and recreational use products. Medicinal cannabis products generally cost less than what you would find in the recreational use market,” Veriheal reports in January 2020. “The reason for this is largely due to the taxes imposed.”

With both medicinal and recreational use allowable in Nevada, patients and residents can benefit from the plant freely regardless of why they are using it. 

Qualifying Conditions

Along with having a qualifying condition, a patient must prove they are a resident of Nevada with a valid driver’s license or a state identification card. The application fee for state registration is $50 annually or $100 for a two-year registration made payable to the Nevada State Health Division.

Possession and Cultivation

The possession/cultivation of cannabis limits vary for registered medicinal cardholders and caregivers and for recreational users. When cannabis is prescribed for a certain disorder, the purchasing power is greater with fewer taxes and the ability to possess more. A registered medical cannabis patient can possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis at a time and cultivate up to 12 cannabis plants as long as they live at least 25 miles from a medical dispensary. In some cases, a caregiver can become exempt from the 25-mile exemption.  

Caregivers

Like a registered cardholder, Nevada caregivers must prove they are residents of the state with a driver’s license or identification card. Additionally, a caregiver must be 21 years of age or older. 

There are specific possession laws for caregivers, who are allowed to purchase up to 2.5 ounces every two weeks on behalf of their patient, surpassing the one ounce recreational limit every two weeks. Additionally, as a Nevada caregiver, one may be able to find themselves exempt from the state rule that bars cultivation within 25 miles of an operational dispensary. 

Lastly, as reported by Veriheal, Nevada offers up to 10% medical cannabis savings as opposed to recreational sales. “In the US, each state is responsible for how it levies taxes on goods that move within its jurisdictions. Cannabis is no different,” reports Veriheal. “The way states levy taxes is completely individual to each state.  So, the tax rates will vary drastically across the country.”

Places to Visit in Nevada After Enjoying Your Medicine

Nevada is not only a vast desert filled with dry beauty and outdoor adventure, but it is also host to one of the most famous metropolises in the world--Sin City. Nevada sees millions of visitors annually who come to gamble the night away while watching some of the top entertainers in Las Vegas. Beyond The Strip, annual events like the Burning Man in the Black Desert or sightseeing the Hoover Dam also make visiting the Battle Born State a great experience. Of course, Lake Tahoe, Valley of Fire State Park, and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area also make up some of Nevada's most beautiful areas that are ready to be explored. So when it's time to venture out to a medical or recreational cannabis dispensary, make some extra time to visit any of the below best places in the state.

Las Vegas

Sin City is Nevada's most infamous stomping grounds for unspoken fun and adventure. Merely walking down the Las Vegas Strip is exciting, with flashing casino lights and celebrity entertainment billboards overhead. Speaking of routes, the Fremont Street Experience is where locals and tourists alike shop underneath a five-block canopy of lights. Feeling European in Vegas? No problem, visit the Venetial Hotel for a gondola ride, or if you want to experience Sin City from the sky, helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon are also available.

Burning Man

A little city in the Black Rock Desert has an annual event, Burning Man, that must not be missed. What began as an arena of local self-expression and art in 1986 has become a renowned event where tens of thousands gather for an incredible artful experience. Art installations, guided nature tours, and more transform the desert into a spiritual transformation territory, reportedly positively changing lives for decades.

Hoover Dam

An engineering wonder built during the Great Depression, the 726-foot Hoover Dam admirably holds back Lake Mead, providing the view of the U.S. largest reservoir in the U.S. built on the Nevada and Arizona state line. Walking tours on Hoover Dam make visiting the site a once in lifetime experience. For even more adventure with a touch of education, visitors also tour the Hoover Dam Power Plant.
