Out-of-State Residents Can Purchase Medical Marijuana in Nevada
Nevada is one of the few states in America that recognizes reciprocity with other states using the medical marijuana program. This means that out-of-state residents can travel to Nevada for business or pleasure and confidently continue their marijuana treatment program. If you are a medical marijuana cardholder from another state, you can legally purchase medical marijuana in Nevada provided you meet the following conditions:
• You must have a valid, non-expired medical marijuana card from your home state. • Your home state must exempt medical marijuana cardholders from criminal prosecution for medical marijuana use. • The law in your home state must require that physicians advise patients about the benefits of using medical marijuana to ease a patient’s symptoms before a card is issued by that state. • The Nevada authorities must be able to verify the validity of your medical marijuana card by accessing a database of registered users.
Non-residents must abide by all of Nevada’s medical marijuana possession laws – found here, regardless of how much marijuana each patient is allowed to possess in their home state.
