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 currently has 60 dispensaries throughout the state, according to data from the state’s Department of Health.
