Following ballot initiatives to tax and regulate marijuana in Nevada in 2002 and 2006, the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) of Nevada is preparing for the next step in its fight to make marijuana legal in the Silver State.
On Wednesday, Dec. 9, MPP-NV will make an announcement at a press conference in front of the Clark County Government Center at 11 a.m. While specific details of the plan will not be revealed until then, Dave Schwartz, manager of the group, hinted that a ballot measure to tax and regulate may be in the works.

”Residents of this great state know that we have been pushing for more sensible marijuana laws in this state for some time now,” Schwartz said today. “We are excited to be launching the next step in this journey and look forward to working with supporters all across Nevada.”
According to Schwartz, Nevadans are tired of laws which penalize a safer choice citizens can make when it comes to recreational substances. “For too long, we have accepted laws that allow adults to use alcohol freely, but punish them if they choose to use a less harmful substance, marijuana,” he said.
“Our marijuana laws simply don’t make sense and it is time to enact a new system.”
