Marijuana in Nevada

Medical marijuana was legalized in Nevada in 2001, and patients were able to access it from dispensaries in 2015. Residents of Nevada voted to legalize recreational marijuana in November 2016.

Local municipalities in Nevada can develop zoning restrictions that dispensaries and businesses must adhere to, and they can limit the number of dispensaries operating in their jurisdictions. However, they cannot ban dispensaries.

The state’s cannabis industry is regulated by three separate agencies: the Department of Food and Agriculture regulates cultivation facilities, the Department of Public Health regulates manufacturers, and the Bureau of Cannabis Control regulates testing, distribution, and retail sales.

Local municipalities have the ability to tax, ban, and otherwise regulate cannabis businesses within their jurisdiction.


Children under the age of 18 can use medical marijuana in Oregon if they have one doctor’s certification and a parent or guardian acting in the role of caretaker.
