Recreational marijuana will soon be legal in the state of Nevada. Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick reports.

54 percent of Nevadans voted to approve Question 2, which makes it legal for those 21 years of age or older to possess, cultivate and use marijuana.

In addition, a 15 percent excise tax will be levied on wholesale marijuana sales, which will be used to pay for additional regulators and law enforcement, with the rest going to the State Distributive School Account.
