Nevada is about to get a whole lot more sweet and HIGH! With the legalization of Marijuana slowly looming over the nation, licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in good standing with the state of Nevada can begin selling marijuana for recreational purposes as early as July 1, the state tax board voted Monday.
The Nevada Tax Commission voted and it was approved that temporary licenses for shops that qualify can start selling recreational marijuana as early as July 1 instead of January. Giving the state Department of Taxation time to test the regulations before the program goes into full effect in 2018.
Marijuana retailers must have state and local licenses to operate. Most Nevada counties have yet to approve their own regulations for the Adult-use retail market. When it is done, adults in the state will be able to legally purchase up to an ounce of weed. The law in Nevada will also allow up to six Marijuana plants to be grown for personal use.
For all the people who have been waiting for the end of prohibition of Marijuana were concerned about the legalization of weed under President Trump. While he was running, Trump said he was supportive of medical marijuana “100 percent” and would respect states’ rights on the issue. But his selection of Jeff Sessions as attorney general, an anti-marijuana hard-liner, was troubling to those who favor progressive drug laws.

Marijuana is the most common illicit substance in the U.S. and the amount of states that are joining the cult of legalizing marijuana is making our fight stronger. National support for legalizing the plant has dramatically risen in the last couple years. Reaching historic highs in multiple polls. However marijuana is still illegal in under federal law.
The laws in Canada are due to change on the Nations birthday of next year. Living in Vancouver, people are more excited then ever. Will it happen? You tell me…
