Cannabis Facts Nevada
As of January 2017, recreational cannabis use is legal for those ages 21 and over in Nevada. Although there are currently multiple states legalizing the medicinal and or recreational use of cannabis, it is important to know it is not legal federally. As the access to cannabis increases, so does use, including among youth. In 2019, more than 18% of Nevada high school students reported being current users of cannabis in the Nevada Youth Risk Behavior Survey.
