Nevada Still Moving Towards Legalization of Marijuana at the Recreational Level

Democratic assemblyman Joe Hogan representing assembly district 10 from Clark County Nevada introduced a bill during the 2013 legislative session which would have legalized recreational marijuana, but it never got a vote in the Assembly Judiciary Committee. Nevada residents could vote on legalization of the recreational use of marijuana for adults in 2014, but that measure is expected to wait until November of 2016. Many states are passing laws to decriminalize and tax recreational marijuana for adults and those states will reap the benefits of millions of dollars in additional tax revenues. Nevada voters may get a chance to cast their votes on a similar measure within the next few years.
