How to Become Patient - Las Vegas ReLeaf Dispensary

How to Become a Patient

Over half the states in the nation have legalized the personal use of medical marijuana. Nevada passed its first bill legalizing medical marijuana on November 7, 2000, going into effect in 2001. However, medical marijuana patients had to grow their own medicine until the first medical marijuana dispensary opened in 2015. This gave medical marijuana patients the chance to finally access and purchase legal medical marijuana close to 15 years after medical cannabis was first legalized.

Becoming a medical marijuana patient enables you to take advantage of better prices, bigger deals, AND our patient referral program! Any time you bring a NEW medical patient with you to shop, you’ll receive an $10 in-store credit to use with your purchase. Though Nevada residents have access to a variety of options, for those with out-of-state identification cards, submitting a medical marijuana application through PrestoDoc is fast, convenient, and affordable!

Only out-of-state patients may use PrestoDoc.

Out-of-state residents new to Nevada, or even those just visiting, can get a medical marijuana card by using their out-of-state identification card and PrestoDoc. As part of our patient reciprocity program, we are proud to accept medical marijuana patients from all states that have medical marijuana programs.
