Taking cannabis products across state lines remains illegal, and would result in a felony conviction if you were arrested for it. We do not advise transportation of any cannabis products across state lines for any reason.
- the substance has impaired the driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle safely, OR
- the driver’s blood contains 2 nanograms per ml. of marijuana (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) or 5 nanograms per ml. of marijuana metabolite (11-OH-tetrahydrocannabinol).
What the law fails to mention is how a nanogram per ml compares to an actual cannabis dose. Because the amount of THC you consume from smoking flower depends on a lot of factors, we’re going to look at a cartridge for our example.
One puff from a cartridge tested at 25% THC would put your immediate blood level at 0.13mg of THC per liter, well over the .002mg per liter set by Nevada law. Marijuana metabolite can remain in your system much longer making it nearly impossible to pass a blood test for marijuana if you’ve had any within a month.
There are no penalties for possession of paraphernalia by people 21 years of age or older.
What does that mean for you?
Up to 3.5 grams of cannabis concentrates or hash on a single person also is penalty free.
Anyone with a valid medical marijuana card who is at least 18 years of age can also legally purchase marijuana in Nevada.
Nevada legalized medicinal cannabis on November 7th, 2000. It would take another 15 years until the very first medical marijuana dispensary opened its doors, though. Full legalization of cannabis for ages 21 and up was passed on November 8th, 2016 thanks to the Nevada Marijuana Legalization Initiative, or Question 2.
In Las Vegas it is illegal to smoke or consume marijuana in public, in a vehicle, or on any federal land. You may be at risk of a fine or potential jail-time if you are stopped by a federal officer of any capacity including federal park rangers.
Where can you consume cannabis? Do you need an mmj card? Our tourist guide to cannabis on the Las Vegas Strip answers all of these questions and more.
Smoking weed in public places, such as bars, hotels, or boardwalks, is still illegal. Furthermore, driving while under the influence is an offense punishable by jail time. We can get a $400 fine and two days in jail for a first offense. We would advise against talking to dealers or buying weed on the Strip — undercover cops tend to patrol around the Downtown area or the Strip.
We recommend ordering online only from authorized sellers. Scammers have recently started using websites, such as Craigslist, in an attempt to sell questionable products. If the seller doesn’t ask us for an ID or a medical marijuana card, it usually means the weed wasn’t sourced legally.
In 2017, the state of Nevada passed one of the most progressive marijuana laws in the country. They now allow marijuana use for both medicinal and recreational purposes. Since 2017, the number of marijuana dispensaries has increased significantly. We’re going to show you how and where to get weed in Las Vegas.
We no longer have to worry about finding a reliable dealer or getting in trouble when we want to buy a few grams of weed. There are many shops where we can buy it legally. Let’s take a look at some of the best spots to buy weed in Las Vegas.
Medicinal marijuana was legalized in 2000. However, weed for recreational use only became legal in 2017. Now, anyone over the age of 21 can purchase weed from a dispensary. All we need to do is provide some form of identification, such as an ID, a driver’s license, or a passport. In order to buy something from the shop, our ID needs to be valid and up to date.
Finally, Nevada citizens can cultivate up to 12 cannabis plants. However, they can only get permission to grow the plants if they live more than 25 miles from a dispensary.
Furthermore, there are many cannabis tours we can sign up for. The tour guides will take us to visit some of the shops, and we can stop and buy whatever we want. Moreover, weed in these dispensaries is always high-quality. We can buy cannabis-based products there as well. Depending on where and what we want to buy, the average price is $15 per gram.
Over 40 dispensaries have opened in Las Vegas since the legalization of cannabis for recreational use in 2017. There is a difference between medical and recreational dispensaries. Medical marijuana cardholders can buy marijuana anywhere. However, if we don’t have a medical card, we have to go to a recreational dispensary.
There are only a few spots in Las Vegas where we can actually smoke weed. However, in a new pilot program, Nevada has opened three consumption lounges in Las Vegas. They plan on opening many more in the near future. More and more hotels are also trying to get a license to open a marijuana lounge. For now, we recommend not smoking in hotel rooms or bars.
