Medical Marijuana in Nevada
Getting your medical marijuana card in Nevada wasn't always as effortless as it is today with NuggMD. Despite being legalized almost two decades ago, medical marijuana has only recently flourished in the Silver State. The Nevada Medical Marijuana Cardholders/Caregivers Program was very slow to get off the ground, taking 15 years for the first commercial cannabis dispensary, Silver State Relief, to open in Sparks. Now 2018, there are MMJ dispensaries all across Nevada including Carson City, Henderson, Elko County, Fallon, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Mesquite, Pahrump, Primm, Reno and Yerington. The cat's out of the bag.
Recreational (Adult-Use) Marijuana Legalization with Ballot 2
Riding the wave of pro-marijuana enthusiasm, recreational cannabis was legalized by Ballot Question 2 in 2016. Amazing it took just 12 months for recreational dispensaries to open considering it took 15 years for one medical marijuana dispensary to operate after legalization. Just remember, recreational cannabis comes with restrictions and steep taxes!
Even more amazing, the state is strengthening existing MMJ laws and making it much simpler to become a patient as the entire medical marijuana application process can be completed and submitted online! Traveling and waiting to see a doctor then doing the same at the DMV to submit paperwork are things of the past.
Another positive change Ballot 2 brought was the introduction of two year registry I.D. cards, meaning you no longer have to apply annually! If that's too long of a commitment you can still purchase a one year. It's $50 for a single year card application or $100 for the two year.
If you want to avoid huge fines, remember that public cannabis use remains illegal. Hotels are public places and most, especially on The Strip, have strict no smoking and vaping policies.
Visiting the doctor and DMV too much hassle? Now you can see a certified cannabis doc online to receive your Nevada MMJ I.D. card in a few simple steps.
Benefits of Having a Nevada Registry I.D. Card
If you qualify, a Nevada Registry I.D. Card is the best way to legally obtain and use marijuana. There are a several ways being a medical marijuana patient simplifies your cannabis experience.
The most obvious benefit? Exemption from marijuana excise tax, though patients must still pay some marijuana taxes like city and/or state.
MMJ patients can possess 2.5 ounces of marijuana every two weeks (14 days) while recreational users face a strict limit of just an ounce or 3.5g (1/8th) of concentrate.
Recreational users can't grow marijuana within 25 miles of the nearest storefront dispensary and are limited to six plants per person. On the other hand, patients who meet certain exceptions to this rule may cultivate up to 12 plants each, regardless of distance.
