Is recreational marijuana legal in Nevada?

26 April 2023


In 2016, Nevada voters approved a ballot question to regulate and tax marijuana. It took effect Jan. 1, 2017.

Since then, adults 21 and older have been able to buy, grow, possess and consume marijuana in Nevada, with certain caveats:

Private cannabis consumption lounges are permitted, but must, among other provisions, install adequate ventilation. After issuing 40 licenses last year, Nevada’s Cannabis Compliance Board expects lounges to begin opening this summer.

Recreational marijuana has been legalized in 22 states and the District of Columbia. An additional 15 states permit medical marijuana.
