In order to receive full legal protections of the Nevada medical marijuana law, under NRS 453A, only a patient with a qualifying debilitating medical condition who has applied for the Medical Marijuana program and obtained a valid Nevada Medical Marijuana Program card, is protected from state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana.
The Nevada law established a confidential state-run patient registry, to issue identification cards to qualifying patients. Patients who refrain from joining the registry, or those who are found to possess a greater quantity of cannabis than is legally allowed by law, may argue the “affirmative defense of medical necessity”, if arrested. Legislators have included a preamble to the legislation stating that:
“The state of Nevada as a sovereign state has the duty to carry out the will of the people of this state and regulate the health, medical practices and well-being of those people in a manner that respects their personal decisions concerning the relief of suffering through the medical use of marijuana.”
In a separate provision, the Nevada School of Medicine, are required to “aggressively” seek federal permission to establish a state-run medical marijuana distribution program.
