Nevada Marijuana Legalization 2016: Latest on Initiative to Legalize Pot Next Year
Nevada, home of the casino kingdom that is Las Vegas, could join the growing list of states legalizing recreational marijuana when the state on Election Day 2016 votes on an initiative that would legalize and regulate recreational pot in the state.
“Nevada has always been an expert in creating businesses that were difficult in creating business models for,” Robert Calkin, CEO of Cannibus Career Institute, told KTNV Wednesday. The initiative, the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act, has already earned a spot on the November 2016 state ballot and would legalize the recreational use of marijuana for people 21 or older in a state where medical marijuana is already legal.
The initiative would tax and regulate cannabis like it does alcohol. “The people of the state of Nevada declare that the cultivation and sale of marijuana should be taken from the domain of criminals and be regulated under a controlled system, where businesses will be taxed and the revenue will be dedicated to public education and to the enforcement of regulations in this act,” it says in initiative’s preamble.
How Nevada’s marijuana initiative would work: Any business with a special license from Nevada’s government would be allowed to sell tested and labeled marijuana to consumers, as stated in the initiative.
