Are you thinking about visiting Las Vegas? If so, you might have heard that it is one of the states where cannabis is legal for recreational use. This is true and if you are over 21 you are able to purchase cannabis items here. However, there are a few things to be aware of before you plan your trip. 

How much can you buy a day?

According to state law, you can purchase one ounce of marijuana flower per day. For concentrates which include wax, shatter and oil, you can purchase one-eighth of an ounce each day. Edibles have the same purchase guidelines. If you break these guidelines then you will face a fine of up to $600 for your first offense. That could certainly put a dampener on your vacation plans. 

How Do You Buy And Where Can You Make Purchases From?

It’s easy to buy cannabis products in Las Vegas, thanks to the recreational laws set in 2017. If you are 21 or over, you can walk into a dispensary. Be aware, you will need to pay in cash at most places. Dispensaries in the state are not able to accept credit cards. However, at Planet 13 we now accept debit cards on purchases as well. 

It’s worth noting that you will need a valid picture ID stating that you are 21 or older. Out-of-state licenses are accepted, it just needs to clearly state your date of birth.

Carrying Cannabis In Your Car In Vegas

You can carry cannabis in your car in Las Vegas. The stipulation here is that you are not allowed to use the product and it should not be over the legal limits mentioned above. You also need to make sure that you are not carrying cannabis into Vegas across the state line. 

Visit Planet 13

Planet 13 is designed to be the ultimate dispensary experience.

Medical Marijuana

You might be interested in purchasing medical marijuana in Las Vegas. If you are an in-state or out-of-state cardholder, this is still legal and that means that you will be able to get the products that may provide the support you need. Something to be aware of here is that prices for these products are often discounted to be a lower price than recreational products. At Planet 13 we offer 10% off your entire purchase if you are an out-of-state cardholder and 20% off your entire purchase if you are a local medical cardholder.

Final Thoughts

The key point to remember when purchasing cannabis products in Las Vegas is that while it is a recreational state, you can not use them in a hotel or on the street. Instead, they can only be consumed in a private residence. This does mean that you can not consume the product at dispensaries either. You can, however, use it on your front porch if you happen to live in Vegas or know someone who lives there. You might think that edibles fall under a different rule, but this is not the case. You will still be facing the same $600 fine if you are caught using these products anywhere other than a private residence.
