Do I have to share my personal information with The Source in order to purchase at your store?

Short answer: No. We do not require retail/recreational customers to share any personal information and we do not keep track of your purchase history. Recreational customers can purchase anonymously. We are required to verify your age using a government issued ID, but we will not store your information unless you voluntarily sign up for our rewards program. Customers who choose to sign up for the rewards program will earn points that can be as credit towards future purchases. We do not share any customer information with anyone for any reason.

As of July 1, 2017, medical patients’ transactions are no longer tracked as well.

Is marijuana legal in Nevada?

Individuals without a medical card must be 21 years or older (with valid government issued ID) to legally purchase or possess products from a retail (recreational) dispensary, such as The Source Las Vegas.

Who can use cannabis in Nevada?

How much are marijuana taxes?

Medical and retail (recreational) are taxed at different rates:

  • Medical: State wholesale tax (15%), local sales tax (8.375%), local municipal wholesale tax (3%), local municipal retail tax (3%)
  • Retail: State wholesale tax (15%), state retail excise tax (10%), local sales tax (8.375%), local municipal wholesale tax (3%), local municipal retail tax (3%)
What are marijuana taxes used for?

Over the next two years, revenue from the recreational excise tax will largely fund a $20 million boost for the state’s Opportunity Scholarships and provide $25 million to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), with the remainder going to the State’s general fund.

The wholesale tax will go to support Nevada’s schools which we will help boost our national education rankings. You can feel good that the taxes you pay are helping our state accomplish great things!

All products sold in medical and retail dispensaries are required to be tested by third party, licensed laboratories.

Nevada has the most stringent testing standards, ensuring the products you get here are among the best you’ll find.

What are the differences between medical and retail (recreational) marijuana?
