marijuanaAlthough there has been a strong push to decriminalize and eventually legalize the possession, sale and use of Marijuana, it is still illegal here in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Nevada allows medical patients to apply for a Medical Marijuana card, which grants them the privilege to possess and use less than one ounce of Marijuana. Although legal under Nevada law, any Marijuana use or possession is still illegal under Federal Law.

Criminal offenses involving Marijuana in Las Vegas range from Misdemeanor to Felony offenses, depending on the facts and circumstances of your case.  Possession of Marijuana, (less than one ounce), for a first and second time offender is a Misdemeanor.  But Possession of Marijuana, of one ounce or more is a Felony offense. Possession of larger quantities of Marijuana can lead to a Marijuana Trafficking charge, which carries high mandatory prison sentences.  Simply smoking Marijuana can lead to a Felony Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance charge.
