A Quick Look At Question 2, And Legalizing Las Vegas Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries
Since July of this year, eligible people have been able to legally purchase marijuana for recreational use in Nevada. The act that legalized this also allowed Las Vegas recreational marijuana dispensaries to open their doors. Still if you are someone who is enjoying the benefits of recreational marijuana; it is smart to know about the law. If you don’t see yourself sitting down to read the text yourself but you are still curious about what it means, don’t worry! We have broken down the important information for you. Here you can read a breakdown of section 2 of Question 2, or the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act.
What Is Section 2?
Section 2 gives a quick look at what the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act will cover. It is essentially the preamble, laying out the answers to the concerns brought up in Question 2.
Understanding The Preamble
Nevada’s government created Question 2 to as a way to fill some of the state’s needs. Concerns having to do with the use of law enforcement resources, public health, and public safety are all addressed by Question 2. The passing of this initiative created the law that allows for the private use of recreational marijuana in Nevada. This law put regulations in place so that law enforcement’s focus would be on those who are truly misusing the substance. Additionally, those without a medical card might be able to enjoy some of the benefits of marijuana.
The regulations allowed Las Vegas recreational marijuana dispensaries to operate legally; after they have completed all of the application processes. This allows for people to potentially start running their own recreational marijuana businesses. Taxation on these businesses will fund this act’s enforcement. Additionally, the act states that Nevada’s public education should also benefit financially because of these taxes.
Regulating Las Vegas Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries And Their Sales Like Alcohol
Question 2 details out what to do, and what not to do, when it comes to recreational marijuana. Nevada residents (and tourists!) should look at some of these regulations similar to those that are on alcohol.
- All cultivating, manufacturing, testing, and transporting of marijuana will be state regulated, or must meet state regulations. In addition to this any marijuana that is sold in Nevada must be tested and labeled.
- Owners of marijuana establishments should always be able to prove that they are operating legally. Furthermore, only licensed recreational marijuana dispensaries are allowed to distribute product.
- It is not legal to drive under the influence of marijuana.
- Anyone who is purchasing recreational marijuana must be over the age of 21. It is illegal to give someone under the age of 21 recreational marijuana.
