On November 7th of this year, voters in Nevada will get to choose if they want marijuana to become legalized. The maximum legally an adult could carry on them would be one ounce.
The bill, if passed, would allow states to put up harsher punishments if one was caught selling the drug to minors. Also if one were to drive on marijuana the punishments would be more severe.
The state would then also allow the setup of government regulated shops where one could buy legal pot. The state would put a $45 excise tax on an ounce. This would lead to some $28 million a year in extra money for the state.
