More About Medical Marijuana in Nevada

Medical marijuana became legal for medical use in Nevada by ballot initiative in 2000, and legal for recreational use by ballot initiative in 2016. Even though recreational use is legal in the state, the medical marijuana program is still vital because many areas of the state ban recreational cannabis sales. And unlike Californians, it's illegal to grow cannabis unless the person lives more than 25 miles away from a state-licensed dispensary.

The medical marijuana legalization initiative required two consecutive votes to pass -- the first in 1998 and the second in 2000 -- because it was a constitutional amendment. It received 59% of the vote in 1998, and 65% in 2000. Once the measure was approved, AB 453 was passed to create the details of the program. The bill also defelonized possession, which was a relief to Nevada MMJ patients because before this bill passed, it was a felony to carry any amount of cannabis in the state.

Despite medical marijuana's early adoption in Nevada, commercial businesses that sold cannabis to patients weren't available for more than a decade. The only way to obtain cannabis was to grow it. It was also so slow and difficult to become a patient that one Las Vegas resident filed a lawsuit against the state for their foot-dragging approach to approving patients.

Commercial distribution finally became possible in 2013 with SB 374. Now that commercial medical cannabis is available, new patients that live within 25 miles of a dispensary in their county can't grow cannabis unless they're approved for a special strain that can't be found or are too ill to travel.

Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana in Nevada

You must have one of the qualifying conditions in order to qualify for a Nevada Registry ID Card. Nevada's list of qualifying conditions is fairly limited compared to other states. Here are the conditions currently accepted by the Division:

  • Aids
  • Glaucoma
  • Cancer
  • PTSD
  • Cachexia
  • Multiple Sclerosis or persistent muscle spasms
  • Sever Nasea
  • Seizures
  • Severe Pain
  • Any additional conditions approved by the Division

How to Become a Medical Marijuana Patient in Nevada

It's actually very simple and easy to become a medical cannabis patient in Nevada.  It only takes a few steps. Simply click the "Get Started" button and create an account. You'll then chat face-to-face with a physician and once you're approved, you'll start your state application process with the Medical Marijuana Cardholder Registry.

Once the state approves you, you'll get an email with a temporary card that you can print out and use right away. This card is good for up to 60 days. Your permanent card will be mailed to you in a few days. You can choose between a 1 year, or 2 year registration option.

How to Become a Cannabis Patient Caregiver in Nevada

A patient may designate one person as their primary caregiver.  Their caregiver must register with the department as well. A patient may only designate one caretaker at a time.

The caregiver must be at least 18 years old and have significant responsibility for the registered patient's care and well being. The caregiver can only be a caregiver to one patient at a time and they can't be a medical marijuana user themselves.

Once caregivers are approved and issued a Registry ID Card, they can only possess up to 12 plants and can produce, possess or deliver no more than 2.5 ounces of cannabis in a single two week period. But neither the patient nor the caregiver can cultivate unless there is no reasonable dispensary access within 25 miles.

How to Renew A Nevada Registry ID

NuggMD patients receive a notification when the time for a renewal evaluation is approaching. It's a good idea to start the process a couple of weeks before the ID is set to expire so there is no lapse in coverage. This is even more important if you have a caregiver since they won't be able to re-register until you do.

Simply head over to NuggMD.com/Nevada and log in to your account to request a new appointment.

Patient Possession Limits

Medical marijuana patients are allowed to possess more cannabis than recreational patients. In each 14 day period, medical patients with valid Registry ID Cards can purchase and possess:

  • 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana
  • Edibles or concentrates containing up to 10,000 mg total THC

The rare patient that needs more than this can request a higher limit from the Division.
In contrast, recreational users are only allowed to possess/purchase up to one ounce of flower, or concentrates up to 1/8 ounce, or edibles edibles containing up to 1,750 total THC.

More About Nevada

Nearly ¾ of Nevada's population lives in Clark County, with the rest of the state consisting mostly of desert. Roughly 86% of the state's land is owned and run by the federal government for both civilian and military services.

Nevada only had a population of about 110,000 in 1940, but legalized gambling and lenient marriage laws created a population boom. It is now home to more than 3 million residents.

There's more to Nevada than just Las Vegas and The Strip. Tourists and locals alike love to go tubing on the Truckee River, explore the caves at Great Basin National Park, swimming at Lake Tahoe, skiing at Mt. Charleston, or on a cruise at Lake Mead. And for those who just can't get enough of Vegas, the city is now home to the (formally) Oakland Raiders. The Las Vegas Raiders will be playing their first game at Allegiant Stadium in Fall 2020.

99% (Yes, 99%) of Patients Recommend NuggMD

This was the easiest, most simple, and safe way to get the medical card I desperately needed.
I didn't know nor didn't believe it was possible to be this easy. In less than 15 minutes I was at the dispensary, card in hand.

Having undergone surgery recently and only having access to narcotic pain medication was making me sick and nauseous, leaving me unable to eat.
Since getting my card and getting medicine from the dispensary I am able to eat and get pain relief without the headaches and nausea.
Thank you Nugg MD for your fast service but most of all your access to compassionate care that I needed on short notice.

Definitely recommend 100% for anyone getting their med card. You will not regret working with them.

Everything about the Nugg MD experience is quick and easy, and reasonably priced.  In the early days of medical recommendations, I went through a few different providers, but the last couple of years I've been using Nugg MD because it's much less of a hassle, and the price is awesome.

Robert C.

Good, fast & reliable service. No complaints :)
I got a great deal on the 4th of July through Nugg.com and I couldn't be happier with them.

Brandon M.

Smooth and easy to deal with. I highly recommend for getting a rec when and if you are in need. Very professional and discreet.  I would give 6 stars if that were an option. Thank you.

How much marijuana am I allowed to purchase/possess?

Medical marijuana users are allowed to possess more than adult use consumers. Patients with a Registry ID Card can have up to two and a half ounces of flower in a two-week period, or concentrates that contain up to 10,000mg total THC.

Can I buy adult-use marijuana with a foreign ID?

Absolutely. "Purchase requires bona fide documentary evidence of the majority and identity of the recipient issued by a federal, state, county, or municipal government, or subdivision or agency thereof." (NRS 453D.100 (b)(2))

Can my boss still fire me for using medical marijuana?

Nevada has some limited protections now for medical marijuana patients who are seeking a job. A.B. 132 prohibits employers from refusing to hire a person just because their pre-employment drug screen is positive for medical marijuana. Certain types of employers are exempt though. Employers subject to federal drug-free workplace laws, employers for safety oriented jobs and those who have collective bargaining agreements that allow or require testing are examples of exempt employers. If you're in doubt, you should ask about your prospective employer's testing policies.

Can my landlord stop me from using cannabis at home?

Yes. Your tenancy with your landlord is a contract, and Nevada's law won't interfere with that ability to contract. Specifically, NRS 453D.100(2)(c) says "The provisions of this chapter do not prohibit a person who occupies, owns, or controls a privately owned property from prohibiting or otherwise restricting the smoking, cultivation, processing, manufacture, sale, delivery, or transfer of marijuana on that property."

How much marijuana am I allowed to possess/purchase for adult use?

You can buy/have one ounce of flower, or ⅛ ounce of edibles or concentrate containing up to 1,750mg THC total. NRS 453D.110

How many plants am I allowed to grow for recreational use?

Only people who live more that 25 miles away from a retail store can cultivate in Nevada. Those people can cultivate 6 plants per person, with up to 2 people on the same property. NRS 453D.110

Can I give marijuana to someone else for free?

You can give away up to an ounce of flower or an eighth of concentrate as long as you take absolutely no remuneration for it. RS 453.D110

Can I use medical marijuana in public?

If you're caught smoking in public or a car, you're subject to a $600 fine and a misdemeanor charge.

Can I get a Registry ID Card if I don't live in Nevada?

No. You're required to prove that you're a resident of Nevada to get a Registry ID Card. Fortunately, Nevada recognizes cards from other states. So if you have a medical marijuana card from your home state, you can present it at a medical dispensary. Be sure to call ahead to ensure this dispensary is willing to take your state's card.

Why it’s best to consult with a marijuana doctor online.

Family doctors are often not willing to talk about medical cannabis as a viable treatment option. This isn't because they don't care. Many of them just don't know enough about recent medical marijuana research and the potential benefits of cannabis for certain conditions. This isn't really something they teach about in medical schools, yet. Most medical schools won't even teach much about the endocannabinoid system. (This is the group of nerves and receptors that respond to cannabinoids.)

NuggMD's physicians are well-versed in recent cannabis research and are proud to help ease access to cannabis for those who need it. They are fully licensed in the state for which they are evaluating patients, and are always happy to share their knowledge with their patients. So don't be afraid to ask your doctor plenty of questions!

When you see your doctor through NuggMD, you won't have to wait in a crowded waiting room. You can go through the entire process, from evaluation to state registration from the comfort and privacy of home. And your medical records are always protected by HIPAA and state law.
