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.
