Nevada celebrates first year of recreational marijuana

It all started on November 8, 2016 when 54.47 percent of Nevadans voted to legalize the use of recreational marijuana and, in turn, launched the process to end cannabis prohibition. With the passing of Nevada’s Marijuana Legalization ballot question, also known as Question 2, more than 602,000 voters throughout the state legalized recreational use of up to an ounce of marijuana (or up to 1/8 ounce of concentrate) at a time for people age 21 and over. A few months later, the Nevada Department of Taxation approved regulations to allow medical marijuana dispensaries in good standing to sell recreational marijuana starting July 1, 2017. To follow is a review of how legalizing adult-use cannabis has inpacted Nevada since it went into effect one year ago, and a look at where the state is headed.
