The only legal way to buy marijuana in Nevada is from a state-licensed store or dispensary. It remains illegal to buy marijuana from any other source. Customers purchasing retail marijuana will have to show proper identification proving they are 21 or older, just like for alcohol purchases.

Adults 21 years and older can legally possess marijuana in the following amounts: 

  • Up to 1 ounce of marijuana
  • Up to 1/8 of an ounce of concentrated marijuana (the separated resin, whether crude or purified, obtained from marijuana)

Adults 21 years and older can legally consume marijuana, but with restrictions on where it can be consumed:

  • You cannot use marijuana in any public place
  • You cannot use marijuana in a moving vehicle, even if you're a passenger

Essentially, this means it can only be consumed on private property (at home, for example), and as long as the property owner has not prohibited it. 

It is illegal and dangerous to drive under the influence of marijuana. Any amount of marijuana consumption puts you at risk of driving impaired.

Adults 21 years and older can legally grow marijuana plants at home for their personal consumption, but only if there is not a state-licensed retail marijuana store within 25 miles of the home.     

The following rules apply:   

  • Up to 6 plants per person, but no more than 12 plants per household
  • Plants must be grown within a closet, room, greenhouse, or other enclosed area that is equipped with a lock or other security device
  • Plants must not be visible from a public place 
  • The grower must own the property or have the permission of the legal owner
