Nevada medicinal marijuana card / Nevada registry I.D. card
Ballot Question 9 Explained
If your state government has a staunch anti-marijuana view but you disagree, what do you do? NuggMD gets this question a lot, and the answer is always the same — start a movement!
Cannabis activists did this nearly two decades ago in Nevada, and the result was voter initiative Ballot Question 9, the culmination of Nevadans uniting to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. Although it passed in 2000, commercial cannabis activity didn’t begin until Silver State Relief opened fifteen years later in 2015 in Sparks. Once their doors opened, Nevada marijuana had too much momentum, which helped recreational marijuana pass via Ballot Question 2 in 2016. Within a year Nevada recreational marijuana stores were open.
Now you can find legal marijuana in Carson City, Henderson, Elko County, Ely, Fallon, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Mesquite, Pahrump, Primm, Reno, West Wendover, and Yerington! Better late than never, right?
How Recreational Marijuana Strengthened Nevada Medical Marijuana Patient Rights
Ballot Question 2 paved the way for two very beneficial amendments to Nevada’s medical marijuana infrastructure.
First, the state now makes it easier to apply for a Nevada Registry I.D. card by moving the process entirely online. No more seeing a doctor and submitting paperwork at the DMV in-person as you can now rely on NuggMD, the country’s premiere telemedicine provider, to do it! Apply in under an hour from home instead of spending the day wasting time, gas and money.
Second, the state now permits two-year registry I.D. cards ($100) so patients don’t have to go through an annual renewal or application process as often. You can still opt for a one-year ($50).
