Understanding what is legal and what is not legal when it comes to marijuana in Nevada is an important first step for medical patients and adult consumers alike. That’s why we ask you to be mindful of the do’s and don’ts of consuming marijuana here in The Silver State.
NRS Chapters 453A and 453D cover the use, violations, and penalties of marijuana in the State of Nevada.
Avoid the legal ramifications from consuming marijuana illegally, follow the law!
Be clear on penalties and violations to our current marijuana laws, which vary from fines, misdemeanor charges and felonies depending on the violation. Public consumption is $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 mindful in promoting the responsible, lawful consumption of marijuana in Nevada.
Regardless if you have your medical marijuana card, or if you are an adult user, you are prohibited from:
- Driving, operating, or being in control of a vehicle or water vessel while under the influence of marijuana;
- Possessing a firearm while under the influence of marijuana;
- Engaging in the use of marijuana in a place open to the public or exposed to public view;
- Possess marijuana or engage in use on or near school property;
- Delivering marijuana to any person for consideration
It is legal in the State of Nevada for persons 21 years of age or older to consume marijuana and marijuana products, and for certain individuals who have been diagnosed with a chronic or debilitating medical condition by a licensed physician, the use of marijuana for medical purposes is allowed, though registration is required by the State. All individuals are prohibited from possessing or consuming marijuana on or near school property, and no one is authorized to consume in public or anywhere that is exposed to public view. Only State-licensed establishments are authorized to sell or deliver marijuana for money.
Recreational Cannabis – What to Expect From Adult-Use Cannabis Sales in Nevada
It is currently illegal for adults 21 & over and medicinal patients to consume marijuana in any of these locations:
- In public, which includes the any cannabis dispensary property, neighboring bus stop, the ballpark, and any other public setting.
- 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
Medicinal marijuana was approved by the Nevada Legislature in 2001. Patients with a valid medical marijuana card supplied through the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program are eligible to purchase up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana at licensed dispensaries every 14 days. Legal cardholders 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.
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, UPS, or FedEx, even if you have a patient card.
While your employer may prohibit you from coming to work while under the influence of marijuana, they may not refuse to hire you because you use marijuana. If you are required to take a pre-employment drug screening test and you test positive for marijuana, that alone does not give an employer the right to refuse you employment.
Driving impaired, whatever the substance, is also illegal. At this time, the same laws that apply to driving under the influence of alcohol apply for 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 a heavier or stronger, more concentrated edibles, you may need a longer time period because EVERYONE’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
