Las Vegas Medical Marijuana

Las Vegas Welcome Sign at Night
Can anyone with a valid medical marijuana card from any state buy medical marijuana in Las Vegas?
Yes. As of January 1, 2015, Nevada medical marijuana reciprocity laws went in effect.  This made it legal for anyone with a valid medical marijuana card from any state to use and buy medical cannabis products in Nevada.  Nevada is the only state in the country that recognizes medical marijuana cards from other states. You’re welcome.

Is recreational marijuana legal in Las Vegas and the State of Nevada?

Almost. You still must have a medical marijuana card to buy marijuana in Nevada… for now.

Question 2 will become effective on January 1, 2017. On and after that date, any adult 21 and older can possess up to one ounce of cannabis and up to an eighth-ounce of cannabis concentrate without fear of arrest or prosecution. That’s not a license to consume cannabis in public. In fact, it’s worth noting that public consumption of cannabis could land you a $600 fine, so don’t abuse the privilege.

Retail cannabis shops will not open anytime soon. By January 1, 2018, the Department of Taxation is required to not only have drafted all necessary rules and regulations, but also to begin accepting applications for legal cannabis stores.

No. Medical marijuana is not supposed to be used in public places, according to law. Please use medical marijuana responsibly.

Is it legal to drive and use medical marijuana?
No. The same laws that apply to driving under the influence of alcohol also apply to driving under the influence of marijuana. If you are driving impaired, no matter the substance, you can be pulled over and prosecuted. Please use medical marijuana responsibly.

How am I protected with a medical marijuana card?
Having a medical marijuana card provides patients legal protection against state prosecution for possession, production or delivery of marijuana as well as the possession of paraphernalia.  The law also protects non-cardholders in the vicinity of someone legally using medical marijuana.

However, users still can be prosecuted and have their cards revoked for using marijuana in public places, driving while high, possessing more than the maximum amount allowed by law, or giving the drug to someone who doesn’t have a card. Please use medical marijuana responsibly.

Can patients travel with medical marijuana?
Not legally. If you’re caught with marijuana in another state, even if you bought it legally in Nevada, you could be prosecuted on drug charges. Even if that state has its own medical marijuana program, it doesn’t mean it protects cardholders from out of state.

Can patients have medical marijuana at the airport?
Marijuana is not allowed at McCarran International Airport. It is a federal facility, and since marijuana still is considered a banned substance under federal law, it is not legal to have at the airport.
