In Nevada, the Cannabis Compliance Board is the governing body responsible for the strict regulation of the state’s cannabis industry, ensuring the protection of public health and safety. Notably, Nevada Revised Statute 453D.100 allows private property owners to restrict cannabis activities, such as smoking, cultivation, processing, manufacturing, sale, delivery, or transfer on their premises.
Despite the legality of cannabis in Nevada, federal law still classifies it as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, thereby prohibiting its sale, production, and cultivation at the federal level. In Las Vegas, the Municipal Code 6.95 addresses medical and adult-use cannabis operations. Establishments that cater to both medical and adult-use cannabis, such as The Sanctuary Dispensaries, are subject to this code.
To identify legitimate dispensaries, the Cannabis Compliance Board’s website maintains a list of state-licensed dispensaries. It is important to remember that while cannabis is legal for individuals 21 and over in Nevada, public consumption remains illegal except in designated cannabis consumption lounges.
For medical marijuana patients, the Medical Marijuana Patient Cardholder Registry offers guidance on regulations and FAQs. Additionally, all individuals involved with cannabis businesses in Nevada must carry a current registered Agent Card, which requires a background check and is issued by the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board.
The regulations also extend to transportation. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has specific rules regarding marijuana and cannabis-infused products during security screenings.
Understanding the nuances of local and federal laws is crucial for compliance and the avoidance of penalties. For those seeking more detailed information, the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board and other resources provided are key references.
