To acquire a Nevada medical marijuana card you must be a resident with a state-issued driver's license or ID. There are no age restrictions but patients under 18 are required to have a caregiver. A patient must have one of the qualifying medical conditions, a doctor's recommendation, complete all the required paperwork, and pay all the fees.
The list of qualifying medical conditions is provided by the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH). If your condition is not listed you may not be approved for the state’s medical marijuana program.
While cannabis is legal in Nevada for adults 21 and older, holding a medical marijuana card has its benefits.
Cardholders do not have to pay the 10% retail excise tax, and can purchase more than twice the amount of flower, concentrate, and edibles as non-cardholders. Cannabis cultivation is legal for adults 21 and older but only if they are farther than 25 miles away from a dispensary and only up to 6 plants. Medical marijuana card holders can grow up to 12 plants if they are farther than 25 miles away from a dispensary, are too ill or unable to drive, or the dispensary does not carry what they need.
An evaluation for a Nevada medical marijuana card with NuggMD only costs $79. Registration through the state costs $50 for a card that lasts one year and $100 for a card that lasts two. There is currently no fee waiver for the state fees.
No. Health insurance will not cover the fees required to submit a medical marijuana application in the state of Nevada because cannabis is federally illegal. If federal law changes, this may impact how health insurers view medical marijuana use.
