Nevada Medical Marijuana Card Legislation
Starting in 2000 when voters passed the Medical Use of Marijuana Act, known as Question 9. Question 9 legalized home cultivation of cannabis for medical use and created a registry system for qualifying patients.
Following the Medical Use of Marijuana Act, recreational use for adults was legalized in 2016 with the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act known as Question 2. This allows adults 21 and older to purchase and consume marijuana for personal use.
