Nevada: Governor Signs Medical Cannabis Expansion Measure

Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak has signed legislation, Senate Bill 430, expanding the pool of patients eligible for medical cannabis therapy.

The measure allows patients diagnosed with anxiety disorders, autism, chronic pain, opioid dependency, and other conditions to obtain a recommendation for medical cannabis.

The act becomes effective on July 1, 2019.

An estimated 18,000 Nevadans are registered with the state to access medical cannabis products.
