Legal Adults Sales Begin in Nevada

Jul 02, 2017 , , , , ,

Legal adult marijuana sales began in Nevada on Saturday, making it the fifth state in the nation to establish a regulated marijuana market for adults.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. PT, adults 21 and older with a valid ID will be able to purchase up to one ounce of marijuana or one-eighth of an ounce of marijuana-infused edibles or concentrates from licensed marijuana retail outlets. Retail marijuana sales will be subject to a 10 percent sales tax, which state officials estimate will generate more than $60 million in the first two years.

Question 2 required the state to initiate adult sales by January 1, 2018, but the Nevada Tax Commission adopted temporary regulations allowing sales to begin six months earlier through existing licensed medical marijuana outlets. Marijuana possession has been legal for adults 21 and older since Question 2 took effect on January 1, 2017.

MPP’s Mason Tvert made the following statement in a press release:

“Legal marijuana sales in Nevada are going to accelerate growth in public support for ending marijuana prohibition,” Tvert said. “Tens of millions of visitors per year from all over the U.S. and around the world will see firsthand that regulating marijuana works. What happens in Vegas will stay in Vegas, but what is learned about marijuana in Vegas will be shared with everyone back home.”

  1. Congratulations Nevada, & Thank you.
    Many folks have been waiting +4 decades for sensible laws for marijuana consumption.
    It is heartening to note that Nevada will profit both from the taxes generated from marijuana sales, & the savings to the stateam by no longer having to arrest, prosecute & jail “offenders”.
    It is a win, win, win event!

  2. Help us in Florida, the backwards state, Florida legislature knows how to screw up anything from counting ballots, gerrymandering, legally smoking medical marijuana.

  4. Cities in Northern California needs to get their act together and start making big bucks for their cities. Most have
    no idea how to get started. In Suisun City, Ca a smoke shop owner tried to find out what was holding up his
    license to sell pot and the people he talked to had no idea how to get started in the Pot business.
