I always think of Reno 911 when I think of Nevada, and it seems like the kind of place that would have a police force like that. I could also see a sketch written about the crew trying to figure out how to handle delta-8 THC, especially now that delta-9 THC is legal in Nevada. Nevada was one of the first states to initially approve medical marijuana use with The Medical Use of Marijuana Act in 2000. Then they legalized recreationally in 2016 with the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act.
But Nevada is a big competitor of traditional marijuana. They’ve been a face to the industry for some time, and they have no reason to separate from that image. They’re in a high THC state, which means they can have medical-grade potency with regulations. Delta-8 THC has not found a home here because of these arrangements. So no, Delta 8 is not legal in the state of Nevada. They even went so far as to name delta-8 on their Controlled Substances Act. They’re one of the few states that do so.
Delta-8 THC is illegal in the state of Nevada.
