Nevada boasts a bustling adult-use and medical cannabis marketplace. Voters chose to fully legalize the plant during the 2016 general election and, as home to Las Vegas—the tourism capital of the United States—the victory was seen as particularly significant among cannabis advocates. Notably, Nevada’s legalization vote came just one year after the state’s medical cannabis dispensaries opened for business, making it one of the fastest states to go from a medical program to a full-blown recreational marketplace. Home grows in Nevada are generally not allowed, but exceptions are made for people who live more than 25 miles from the nearest licensed retailer.
