California Residents Can Now Use Their Medical Card in Nevada

California Residents Can Now Use Their Medical Card in Nevada - July 07, 2022

Residents of California can legally purchase cannabis in Nevada with a legit, non-expired California medical marijuana card. The NRS chapter 543a specifies certain legal provisions for Medical Marijuana Use in Nevada. This includes a list of Miscellaneous Provisions which also specifies medical marijuana use for non residents.

It states, “Medical marijuana dispensaries authorized to dispense marijuana to non-residents of this State under certain circumstances.” Thus, permitting non residents with a medical card to shop at dispensaries in Nevada. All laws of the Nevada medical marijuana program apply to out-of-state patients.

This is possible due to the medical marijuana reciprocity laws in Nevada. Reciprocity means that a qualified MMJ patient with a valid card of their state, is allowed to purchase cannabis from a licensed medical marijuana dispensary in another state. They would also be entitled to the same benefits as MMJ patients in that state.

Even though Nevada has an established medical marijuana reciprocity program, California MMJ patients have to follow some rules for using, possessing and purchasing medical marijuana in Nevada.
