CARSON CITY — Patients with medical marijuana cards would not be barred from getting a concealed weapons permit under a bill introduced Monday by Sen. Kelvin Atkinson, D-North Las Vegas.
Senate Bill 351 makes it clear in state law that someone who holds a valid medical marijuana card is not considered “an unlawful user of, or addicted to, a controlled substance solely because the person engages in the medical use of marijuana.”
The bill was referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
