Who can Purchase Marijuana in Nevada?
People who are 21 and older may purchase recreational marijuana with a valid, government-issued ID. Those 18 and older with a valid medical marijuana card may purchase medical marijuana even if the card has been issued by a state other than Nevada. Minors may also qualify for a medical card if a parent or guardian signs a minor release form and agrees to act as the child's primary caregiver.
How much Marijuana can be Purchased at One Time?
Recreational marijuana consumers may purchase up to 1 ounce of cannabis – or 1/8 ounce of concentrate – at one time. People with a medical marijuana card may purchase up to 2.5 ounces of “usable” marijuana within a two-week period. For now, “usable” includes flower, edibles, concentrates and topicals. Legislators continue to debate a clearer definition of the word “usable” since it can be open to interpretation.
