NV Marijuana Card

Updated on May 19, 2020.  Medical content reviewed by Dr. Joseph Rosado, MD, M.B.A, Chief Medical Officer

In order to use medical marijuana in Nevada, you must be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition and obtain a Nevada medical marijuana ID card.

The Nevada medical marijuana law established a confidential state-run patient registry to issue identification cards to qualifying patients. Patients who do not have a qualifying medical condition or do not wish to join the registry may legally purchase recreational marijuana from licensed dispensaries in Nevada.
