Nevada’s New Marijuana Law



The Silver State is about to see a lot more green starting on Saturday.

After 55 percent of Nevada voters approved of a ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in November, dispensaries will begin opening their doors to sell to the public this weekend.

“I’m a child of the 60s, and I saw that it didn’t destroy the world,” state Senator Tick Segerblom, a leader of the marijuana legalization movement, told NBC News. “It’s a no brainer to make it regulated, to tax it, to test it and to let people enjoy it.”

The newly legalized drug is expected to bring a tourism boom to Las Vegas, where Segerblom estimates sales could bring in as much as $150 million — nearly a quarter of the state’s 2018 infrastructure budget — in two years for the Nevada government.

Trump Admin Fires First Shot in Renewed War on Weed



Trump Breaking News Network -Trump Admin Fires First Shot in Renewed War on Weed.

Las Vegas, NV — Attorney General Jeff Sessions has long opposed cannabis legalization, claiming “Good people don’t use marijuana,” and this week alleged violence increases when it’s legal (yet another alternative fact perpetuated by the Trump administration).

On Tuesday, Sessions also claimed:

We’re revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.
“States, they can pass the laws they choose. I would just say, it does remain a violation of federal law to distribute marijuana throughout any place in the United States, whether a state legalizes it or not.”

Indeed, voters in Nevada voted to legalize recreational marijuana in the 2016 election. Question 2 passed with 54% of the vote, making possession of up to one ounce of cannabis legal at the beginning of 2017. It will take until 2018 until it is legally available for sale.

Now, it appears the Department of Justice has fired the first shot in the attorney general’s war on weed. High Times magazine is slated to hold a “Cannabis Cup Las Vegas” event on the Moapa Paiute tribe’s land this weekend. The magazine has held these events in cities throughout the world and bills them as “celebrating the world of ganja through competitions, instructional seminars, expositions, celebrity appearances, concerts and product showcases.”
