A Guide to Marijuana Laws in Las Vegas, Nevada

It is now legal in Nevada for adults 21 and over to possess up to one (1) ounce of marijuana in private. But people are still slapped with fines and lengthy prison sentences merely for selling marijuana or smoking a joint in public. Even patients protected under the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program can be jailed for growing too much pot.

Although marijuana is arguably less unhealthy and less addictive than such legal substances as beer and cigarettes, pot nevertheless remains criminal both federally and in the state of Nevada. And despite Las Vegas's reputation as "Sin City," Clark County enforces disproportionately harsh marijuana laws.

Furthermore, any immigrant or non-citizen who is convicted of any marijuana-related charges may be deported from the U.S!  Unless the charge was for simple marijuana possession in Nevada of thirty (30) grams or less of marijuana, any drug charge is a removable offense for aliens.  (Click here to go to our information page on the criminal defense of aliens in Nevada.)
