I’ve been qualified! What do I do while I’m waiting for my card to arrive?
After your referred physician has determined your eligibility for medical marijuana, assuming you qualify, you will receive a 90 day temporary recommendation & online patient verification number before you leave your referred doctor’s office.
Can you be evicted from housing for producing or using Medical Cannabis?
Nevada does not presently have a specific law governing whether you may be evicted from your residence as a result of the production or consumption of marijuana for medical reasons. However, people living in federally subsidized home (HUD Homes) may be evicted. Further, many residential lease contracts include restrictions on the use or production of illegal substances on the premises. If ever you encounter an issue with your landlord, contact us for guidance at (702) 902-5555.
Are Employers required to make accommodations for Medical Marijuana users?
No, employers are not required to make any accommodations for employees who are prescribed marijuana. We recommend that you do not attempt to bring or use your medical marijuana at your workplace.

- Change of address or phone number
- Change in medical status
- If you’ve received new criminal convictions
- If you’ve changed your designated primary caregiver, or if you no longer have a caregiver.
Once the Nevada State Health Division receives your changes, they will send you written confirmation through the mail. If you’ve changed caregivers, you must return the old caregiver card within seven days of this confirmation. If you do not inform the Nevada State Health Division of these changes, you may face civil and criminal penalties.
How much Marijuana does Nevada’s Medical Marijuana Program entitle me to possess?
If you are accepted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, you and your designated primary caregiver may possess up to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana total; you cannot each possess 2.5 ounces of marijuana. (NRS 453A.200) Usable marijuana typically refers to seeds, dried leaves and buds, or any kind of marijuana that’s ready to be smoked. Usable marijuana does not include the stalks and roots of the plant. (NRS 453A.160) In addition to the 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana, you and your caregiver may together possess up to three mature marijuana plants and up to four immature marijuana plants. (NRS 453A.200) A mature marijuana plant is blooming, whereby its flowers or buds may be seen without visual aid. Immature marijuana plants are not yet blooming. (NAC 453A.080)
If my application to the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program is denied, may I reapply?
If your application is denied, you may reapply after six months have passed since the date you were denied. But if your application was denied solely because it was incomplete, you may reapply right away. (NRS 453A.210) If you are accepted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program but your membership is revoked, then you may not reapply for another twelve (12) months. (NRS 453A.225) To increase your chances of being approved for medical marijuana, strongly consider retaining our services at (702) 902-5555.

Finally, the designated primary caregiver may have only one medical marijuana patient. (NRS 453A.080, NAC 453A.150)
