Nevada Legalizes Pot For Recreational Use
At the stroke of midnight on Saturday, Nevada became the fifth state in the United States to allow citizens to purchase and consume pot for recreational use.
People aged over 21 can buy up to an ounce of marijuana at any one time and consume it in their homes as long as they have a valid ID.
Independent.co.uk reports: The millions of tourists who visit Nevada cities every year are expected to make nearly two of every three purchases from retailers, who began selling pot early on Saturday morning.
Hundreds of people lined up at Essence Cannabis Dispensary on the Las Vegas Strip and cheered as the doors opened just after midnight.
Dispensaries worked furiously to prepare for the launch, stamping labels on pot products, stocking up their shelves, adding security and checkout stations, and announcing specials.
