Question 9 establishes laws regarding dispensaries and caregivers. Caregivers must be designated by the patient and have the responsibility for assisting the patient in the safe use of medical marijuana, and providing medical cannabis to patients. A caregiver must be 18 years of age or older. Nevada caregivers also have the responsibility of managing the well being of the patient diagnosed with a chronic or debilitating medical condition. Patients may only designate one primary caregiver at a time. Nevada caregivers must submit to a finger print background check through the state registry. Question 9 does not give guidelines concerning the designation of dispensaries. There are few operating dispensaries throughout Nevada. Primarily, patients and caregivers must grow medical cannabis for the patient’s personal use.
