While the Constitution of the State of Nevada guarantees residents the right to use marijuana for medical reasons while under a doctor's supervision, the federal government still treats nearly all forms of marijuana cultivation and possession as crimes.   Additionally, unlike the neighboring state of California, Nevada residents with a valid marijuana prescription do not have the ability to visit dispensaries to acquire their marijuana.  Consequently, Nevada residents with a valid marijuana prescription are essentially left with no means to acquire their marijuana and are forced to seek illegal means of production or purchase.   

Nevada state and federal law prohibits the recreational use and possession of marijuana.  Convictions for marijuana offenses can range from relatively minor to extremely harsh.  Convictions for cultivation or distribution of marijuana can result in years behind bars.  Even relatively minor convictions can have serious consequences beyond the criminal penalties such as an inability to acquire student loans or seek gainful employment.
