Tourists can now purchase medical marijuana in Las Vegas -- is recreational next?

It's been 15 years since Nevada voters approved a ballot measure legalizing medical marijuana in the state, but it wasn't until August 24 that the first dispensary opened its doors in Clark County.

"We've been so busy, there are lines around the corner at some times of the day," said Euphoria Wellness Managing Director Darlene Purdy.

Located in southwest Las Vegas, the dispensary has seen more than 100 patients per day, according to Purdy, some of whom have been emotional about finally being able to purchase their medicine legally.

Arizona Medical-Marijuana Patients Can Now Buy Cannabis Legally in Las Vegas and Reno

Arizona's medical-marijuana patients now can patronize newly opened dispensaries in Reno and Las Vegas and possess up to 2.5 ounces anywhere in Nevada.

Arizona, like some of the other 23 states with medical-marijuana laws, allows people with valid medical cards from other states to legally possess marijuana in Arizona, but they can't legally buy it at Arizona dispensaries.

Nevada apparently is the only state that allows its dispensaries to sell to patients from other states. And now its dispensaries have begun to open, greatly expanding where Arizona's 80,000 patients can legally buy cannabis.

Do You Need A Medical Marijuana Consultant?

RENO, NV - Several licensed medical marijuana dispensaries have opened up in the Reno area recently. Currently, there are approximately 10,000 Nevadans with patient cards who can gain entrance into those shops. Nevada’s Department of Public and Behavioral Health is noticing a trend. While the activity is not illegal, it is not necessary for all patients, and can cause confusion.

There is only a limited number of medical marijuana dispensaries in Washoe County. They aren't open to the general public, rather those patients who upon a doctor's recommendation receive a state-issued ID and make their way in to the shop.
