Marijuana & Nevada: Common Questions

How much marijuana can you possess? It is legal to posses up to 1 oz. of marijuana; using marijuana recreationally in public, however, is still a misdemeanor. Recreational marijuana may only be consumed in private residences. 

Can you possess marijuana at a casino or in a hotel? Marijuana is prohibited throughout casinos and hotel properties, including guest rooms. Housekeepers who discover marijuana may call their superiors who may also call the authorities.  Can you smoke in a dorm room or at school? Nevada’s secondary, undergraduate, and graduate schools including UNLV abide by a zero-tolerance drug policy for students and staff.  Can I carry marijuana in local or state government buildings? Depending on the building, the safe answer is no. Nevada law still prohibits the consumption of marijuana anywhere but in a private residence. Landlords can also prohibit marijuana and employers still have the right to test workers for drugs and fire them for drug use.  Can I drive with marijuana in my car?
