The definition of marijuana in Nevada (NRS 453.096)
Explained by Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorneys

Marijuana plants

Nevada marijuana laws define marijuana as all parts of the cannabis plant (except the mature stems) whether it is still a seed or growing in the dirt or fully harvested.


Hemp plants

Since "hemp" is a kind of cannabis plant, the growth, possession and sale of hemp are carefully regulated in 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


Marijuana seeds

Unlike California, Nevada draws no distinction between marijuana and "concentrated cannabis."
