Statewide Ballot Question 2 - Initiative to Regulate and Tax Marijuana

Statewide Ballot Question 2 - Initiative to Regulate and Tax Marijuana

Question 2 proposes to amend the Nevada Revised Statutes to add several new sections that would require the Department of Taxation to regulate and administer the operation of facilities that cultivate, produce, and dispense marijuana products in the state. Question 2 additionally requires the Department to collect a 15 percent excise tax upon the wholesale value of marijuana sold by a marijuana cultivation facility in Nevada. The proceeds from the excise tax, less costs incurred by the Department of Taxation and counties, cities, and towns to carry out certain provisions of Question 2, must be deposited in the State Distributive School Account.

Question 2 also decriminalizes the personal use, possession, or cultivation of marijuana under certain circumstances and provides for criminal penalties related to the unlawful cultivation, consumption, manufacture, or distribution of marijuana.
