Nevada Legalizes Recreational Marijuana - Nov 8, 2016

NEW NEVADA RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA LAWS AND YOU

Nevada Recreational Weed Laws - What can you do now?

 

On November 8, 2016, the majority of Nevada citizens voted yes to legal marijuana.  Nevadans can now smoke rec weed lawfully in private spaces. Commercial cannabis cultivation and sales will be regulated like any other business.  The final vote tally was 54 percent yes and 46 percent no.  Las Vegas marijuana businessmen are calling the result "huge".  This happening is surprising because the no vote was pushed very hard by the Nevada establishment - which control the media and operate in concert with the here-to-fore powerful globalists headed by the infamous busybody billionaire George Soros.

YOU CAN'T BUY REC WEED FOR A YEAR 

Despite recreational marijuana being legal now, the state is dragging its heels; consumers can't buy it legally in State until Jan 1, 2018.  It is also illegal to bring marijuana across state lines.

“Thanks to the support of a majority of voters, Nevada now joins the growing list of states that are rejecting prohibition.” - Erik Altieri, NORML- Executive Director

 

WHAT LEGALIZED RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA EFFECTIVELY MEANS


As of January 1, 2017, Adults in Nevada (over 21) can:

  • buy recreational marijuana from a licensed dispensary or outlet (once they open in 2018-ish)

  • possess personal use cannabis - up to one ounce of flower

  • possess up to 3.5 grams of concentrated marijuana

  • grow up to six cannabis plants at home (see restrictions below)

  • buy weed paraphernalia

 

As of January 1, 2018, Businesses in Nevada can:

  • produce commercial recreational cannabis under license

  • retail marijuana under license

  • pay tax of 15% on recreational marijuana sales, proceeds go to funding education

 

WHY RECREATIONAL USERS WANT TO GET CANNABIS MEDICAL ID

  • Medical Marijuana users will save %15 on the purchase of cannabis.

  • the tax on $100 per month - cannabis ID saves $180 per year.

  • if you're caught smoking in public, police and judges tend to be more lenient on card carrying cannabis users.

  • dispensaries can refuse access to medical marijuana section, which sometimes have the best strains.

FOES OF MARIJUANA - SHELDON ADELSON NOT HAPPY WITH YES VOTE

Despite special interests spearheadded by Sheldon Adelson, supposidly in best interests of the casinos.... Nevadans ignored the media noise and took a strong stand for smart for pro marijuana policy. Contrary to Adelson's spheils the state stands to create a lot of jobs, generate millions in tax revenue, free up law enforcement to pursue more important matters and cut off the life blood in organized crime. 

Although Adelson’s special interest money was enough buy the opinions of public media, the majority of Nevadans are no longer buying it and vote, no more prohibition.  

Now with California also voting for legalization, the entire Western U.S. is now legal marijuana territory. America may finally end the self inflicted plague which is the war on drugs, 

BUSINESS LICENSES

Licenses will be limited by county and its population. For example, in Clark County, 80 retail marijuana store licenses are expected to be issued, while small countries of 50,000 residents will be allotted approximately two licenses.

For the first year or so, current medical marijuana dispensary owners  have priority on recreational licenses which include the building of new facilities for growing, manufacturing and testing...

Basically, recreational users will have to pay an extra 15% over medical users, and it remains to be seen if all medical strains will be available to recreational users.

Counties may ban cannabis dispensaries and grow operations, but they cannot stop citizens from consuming and growing marijuana (at home) according to the above State Laws.
