Important Information About Medical Marijuana Cards in Las Vegas, Nevada
Recent changes in Nevada state laws regarding the medicinal use of marijuana have led to a barrage of questions in regards to what is legal when it comes to obtaining a marijuana card in Nevada. Our Law Office receives inquiries daily from individuals wondering “How do I get a marijuana card in Las Vegas?”
As of April of 2014, the following holds true in the Las Vegas Valley, as well as the rest of the state of Nevada:
Any individual must have a registry identification card issued by the Division of Public and Behavioral Health (i.e. a medical marijuana card.) If any organization, individual, or doctor claims they are issuing a legitimate medical marijuana card to you, but they are not sending your application out through the Division of Public and Behavioral Health, be aware that you are not legally obtaining a State-approved medical marijuana card.
It is in your best interest to obtain a medical marijuana card from a legitimate & trusted source, such as our Law Office.
