To begin, we will print your registry packet in the office at the time of your visit. The doctor will sign off on the “physician’s statement” for either 1 or 2 years after being recommended. The next step is to submit the packet to the state of Nevada for processing with the appropriate state fee of either $50 for a 1-year card or $100 for a 2-year card. Processing typically takes 24-72 hours but can vary based on the volume of applicants. Once approved, you will receive an approval letter good for 60 days.

90 Day Verifiable Physician’s Statement

Only patients that have enrolled in the Nevada Marijuana Card Registry Program will be accepted at the licensed Las Vegas marijuana dispensaries. The verifiable physician’s statement is a great way to show that you have been evaluated and recommended medical marijuana for your condition. It also provides patients a way to show proof that they are in the process of becoming legal. Remember, you are not legal until you are successfully enrolled in the Nevada Marijuana Card Registry Program.

Purchasing Medical Marijuana In Las Vegas, Nevada
In certain states such as California, patients only need a physician’s statement to obtain their medical marijuana. Each state has different laws. Some states allow patients to “donate” medical marijuana to each other. In Nevada, this is 100% illegal. Patients must purchase their medical marijuana at state-approved and licensed Las Vegas Marijuana dispensaries. By using illegal delivery services, patients not only risk prosecution but the potentially receiving unsafe product. Unlicensed delivery services put patients at risk because there is no standard or regulations as to how they operate. Licensed Las Vegas Marijuana Dispensaries provide safe access to medical marijuana. These facilities meet rigorous testing and requirements imposed by the state.
