Buying Marijuana In Nevada

Possessing Marijuana In Nevada

According to existing Nevada marijuana laws 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)

Nevada Marijuana Laws Regarding Consumption

Adults 21 years and older in the state of Nevada are legally allowed to 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.
