A Full Guide to Marijuana and Las Vegas

Las Vegas, the playground for adults, has all the requirements for the adult cannabis user, twenty-four action, excitement, and no hassle from the cops for purchasing your weed, adds to the experience, and appeal for smoking marijuana while on vacation in Vegas.

Medicinal cannabis was legalized in Nevada on November 7, 2000. However, it took 15 more years before we could walk into a dispensary and purchase our legal marijuana edibles, or herb needed for smoking marijuana. The full legalization of cannabis use for over 21 years and over was finally passed in 2016, November 8. Thanks to the Nevada Marijuana Legislation Initiative.

Cannabis is legal in Nevada but be mindful of where you are consuming the bud. Legally marijuana can only be consumed while you are on private property. Age 21 and older permits you to possess an ounce of weed for personal use. Remember to bring legal ID. Driver’s license or passport are acceptable ID when purchasing cannabis products, including CBD products. If you choose to consume hash or concentrates, you can also have 3.5 grams on your person without facing a penalty. Those papers or grinders that you have in your stash bag are also penalty-free if you are 21 or older. Medical marijuana users over the age of 18 can purchase their medicine without penalty in Nevada. Medical marijuana sales are tracked in Nevada; recreational marijuana is not tracked.

Vacationing in Las Vegas for cannabis users have some rules to follow, here are some of those relevant laws:

  • Hotels rooms are not classed as private residences, therefore do not fall under legal consumption areas for smoking marijuana
  • No smoking on the street or sidewalks or in the casino
  • If caught consuming in public, you could face a fine of $600
