Is Cannabis Legal in Nevada?
Cannabis in Nevada is legal for both medical and adult use.
Date of Legalization
Nevada legalized the medical use of cannabis in June 2001, through the passage of Assembly Bill 453. However, commercial sales of medical cannabis were not allowed in the state until June 2013. Nevada went on to legalize cannabis for adult use in 2017 through the previous year’s electoral process.
Within Nevada’s adult use framework adults 21+ can legally possess up to 1 ounce of cannabis, up to 6 plants within their home, up to 1/8 of an ounce of concentrated cannabis (the separated resin, whether crude or purified, obtained from cannabis). Within the medical framework, patients may possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis and up to 12 plants.
