When Nevada joined the growing number of states with legalized recreational and medical cannabis last November, many marijuana smokers in our state breathed a sigh of relief. Now, with our second legal 4/20 day just around the corner, smokers in the state of Nevada can enjoy this cherished stoner holiday with less fear of persecution from the authorities.
But, just because voters decided to allow recreational marijuana use, residents are still waiting for the legal structures supporting recreational and medical use to be put in place. Because of that, there are a number of precautions that cannabis users should take.
As of Monday, January 8, adults in Nevada can buy up to one ounce of marijuana flowers or one-eighth of marijuana concentrate per visit to a legal dispensary. However, the private sector and state legislature are still catching up.
It’s looking like recreational marijuana smokers will have to wait until June or July before being able to legally purchase their bud from a dispensary with the appropriate licenses and permits in place. That means although possession of cannabis without a medical card is no longer illegal, unless you are a medical cannabis patient, you cannot legally purchase marijuana or marijuana concentrates.
