Recreational cannabis is now legal in Nevada.
Nevada has completely gone against the federal prohibition of hemp, taking back control to a state level. This means just providing a state ID proving you are over 21 can have you walking into any recreational cannabis collective and able to buy pot. The Senate passed the bill 20-to-0 in the legislation’s provision for hempseed development within the state and is slated to boost the market.
The new bill has provisions. You have to be 21 years of age or older to buy cannabis products, you can grow up to six plants per person for personal use. If a person is more than 25 miles away from a medical marijuana facility they can have the right to grow up to 12 plants. Consumption of cannabis is only allowed on your own private property.
The new provisions also state that no cannabis can be sold or distrusted to persons under 18. You cannot grow cannabis on property that you do not own. No consumption of cannabis is allowed in casinos or in public places.
Now that cannabis is legal in Nevada, it’s going to be another economic wave of on top of the casino and gaming commission’s stronghold over the state. Nevada is continuing in its fashion of going against the norms and status quo by allowing gaming and cannabis to be legal in the same state.
So yes, next time you are in Las Vegas and you’re over 21, go grab an eighth of that Sin City OG!
