History

In November 2000, 65% of Nevada voters approved ballot Question 9, which allowed the use of medical marijuana in Nevada and authorized home cultivation with a patient registry. Details are listed in Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 453A: Medical Use of Marijuana .

 

In June 2013, Governor Sandoval signed Senate Bill 374 , authorizing licensed medical marijuana facilities for cultivation, production, dispensaries, and laboratories, and updated NRS 453A to allow for their regulation.

 

The initial ten-day application period for medical marijuana facilities was August 5-18, 2014. Nevada received 519 applications, which by law had to be scored and ranked within 90 days. On November 3, 2014, Nevada granted provisional certificates to 182 cultivation, 118 production, 55 dispensary, and 17 independent testing facilities. The first received final certification and opened in March 2015. By the end of 2016, only 65 of the 372 facilities with provisional certificates had received final certification.

 

In November 2016 Nevada voters passed Question 2 , authorizing the sales of recreational marijuana. For the first 18 months from the date that recreational dispensaries are allowed to open, only those with a medical marijuana license were allowed to own and operate recreational facilities. As with the medical framework, counties are legally allowed to ban recreational dispensaries. Some retailers were able to begin sales for recreational marijuana on July 1, 2017. Nevada accepted additional license applications in 2018. Green Rush Consulting submitted a winning application on behalf of a marijuana cultivator.

 

Other State Information:

Between July 2017 and March 2018, marijuana sales in the state generated $386 million. Of this, approximately $305 million came from the adult use, recreational market despite initial supply shortages. Industry analysis firm New Frontier projects the market value to grow to $622 by 2022.
