Legal Recreational Marijuana Sales Begin in Nevada a Month from Today

Legal recreational marijuana sales begin in Nevada in just a month.

On July 1st, medical cannabis dispensaries in Nevada will be allowed to sale marijuana to everyone 21 and older. This is due to state officials recently passing rules that allow for an early start to recreational marijuana sales, which were legalized by voters last year.

Under the new rules, dispensaries will be authorized to sell up to an ounce of cannabis to those 21+, including tourists. Once the state’s system of recreational cannabis retail outlets is up and operating sometime next year, dispensaries will go back to distributing the plant exclusively to patients who have received a physician recommendation and are registered with the state.

Nevada Officials Approve Early Marijuana Sales, to Begin as Soon as July 1st

Nevada officials have approved an early start to legal marijuana sales.

The Nevada Tax Commission has given approval to temporary retail marijuana regulations, allowing recreational sales to begin as soon as July 1st. This is according to reporter Patrick Walker, who notes that the rules are “subject to local permits”.

Voters in Nevada approved the legalization of marijuana last year for those 21 and older. The initiative allows for a system of licensed and regulated cannabis retail outlets and cultivation centers; however, these outlets are set to be open until sometime next year. The rules approved by the tax commission allows legal sales to begin much earlier than expected, with the possibility of such sales starting on July 1st.
