Can you grow marijuana in nevada

Q: Can I give marijuana to someone as a gift?

A: Once again, no. But that could change. A bill request from state Sen. Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, would give local governments the authority to permit marijuana consumption in certain areas they see fit, such as bars, parks and other public areas.

Q: Who can use it?

Why? Because no stores can sell recreational marijuana for several months. Question 2, which Nevadans approved by a nine-point margin last month, gives the state’s Department of Taxation until Jan. 1, 2018, to craft the the regulations that will govern retail marijuana dispensary licenses and sales. The department has said it is working on temporary regulations that would allow for licensed medical shops to sell some recreational products, but that won’t likely happen until the summer of 2017.

Q: So where can I smoke it legally?

Q: Can I drive around with marijuana in my car?

Otherwise, marijuana, marijuana products and paraphernalia will be subject to standard state and local sales taxes.

A: In practical terms — a lot. There’s about 28 grams in an ounce, and researchers at the RAND Drug Policy Research Center calculated that the average joint uses about 1/2 gram of marijuana. So that means an ounce of pot can make roughly 60 joints.

A: Hard to say at this point. Buying an 1/8 ounce of medical marijuana (about 7-8 joints) will run between $30 and $50, depending on the quality of the strain. Recreational marijuana will have additional taxes that are passed on to the consumers, so prices will likely be slightly higher.

If you plan to use cannabis, it’s important to know and follow the laws. The laws on this page may not apply to medical cannabis.
