Summary: In Nevada, new marijuana possession limits are set to take effect from January 1st, allowing adults aged 21 and older to purchase up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis flower and/or up to one-quarter of an ounce of concentrates from licensed retailers. This change comes as a result of legislation signed by Republican Gov. Joe Lombardo, increasing the legal purchase and possession limits.
Nevada’s Laws Evolve: Higher Marijuana Possession Limits Starting January
The new legislation, SB 277, signed into law by Governor Joe Lombardo in June, marks a significant change in Nevada’s cannabis regulations. Previously, the law limited possession to one ounce of flower and one-eighth of an ounce of concentrates. The updated law now permits adults to legally purchase and possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis flower and up to one-quarter of an ounce of concentrates.
This change reflects Nevada’s evolving stance on cannabis use and regulation. In 2016, Nevada voters approved a statewide ballot initiative legalizing the adult-use cannabis market, following the approval of medical cannabis production and distribution in 2000. The new possession limits are part of a broader effort to regulate and normalize cannabis use in the state.
Additionally, the law includes provisions allowing licensed medical dispensaries to begin serving non-patients starting January 1st. This expansion of access is expected to further integrate cannabis into Nevada’s legal and commercial landscape.
