To get mmj in Nevada, you can either cultivate it or buy from a registered dispensary. All patients using mmj must have a valid MMJ card issued by the Department of Health and Human Services Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH). To apply for a medical card in Nevada, you have to be a legal resident of Nevada, be evaluated and diagnosed with at least one of the qualifying conditions, get a recommendation from a physician, and be above 18 years old.
Since the legalization of recreational mmj, online registration has become available but only open to adult patients of 18 years and above. Minors who want to apply for medical card will have to do so through a parent or legal guardian under the Nevada mmj registry.
With telemedicine services like we offer at Nevada MMJ Card, registering for a medical card is easy and fast. When applying for a medical card, a patient must have a driver’s license, a state-issued ID card, a doctor’s recommendation letter, and proof of payment of the registration fee.
Being a cardholder in Nevada has its benefits as cardholders are also allowed to grow mmj within 25 miles of their residence and even inside the residence -though it must be in an enclosed environment. Cardholders are to purchase medical card from licensed dispensaries, buying mmj from anywhere that isn’t licensed is a crime in Nevada.
Nevada and mmj
Use of mmj was officially made legal in Nevada in June 2001, the passage of Assembly Bill 453, and it took effect on the 1st of October in that same year. After this legalization, personal cultivation of mmj for consumption was the only available means, with each patient having a maximum of 12 plants. However, these restrictions have been improved with Nevada’s recent reviews to its mmj program
