Marijuana is an illegal substance in Nevada. Marijuana includes all parts of the cannabis plant (except the mature stems) whether it is still a seed or growing in the dirt or fully harvested.
Since "hemp" is a kind of cannabis plant, the growth, possession and sale of hemp are also illegal in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, you may purchase various products made from hemp grown in countries where it is legal. Some states have moved to legalize the cultivation of hemp, but it is still illegal under federal law. To learn more about hemp, visit Hemp.org.
Unlike California, Nevada draws no distinction between marijuana and "concentrated cannabis."
