Nevada Makes Marijuana Legal – level 1

10-07-2017 07:00

Nevada is an American state. It legalises selling recreational marijuana. This is the eighth state to do this.

In Las Vegas, Nevada, people go to a marijuana dispensary. One woman says that she is happy that Nevada legalises the drug. The boss of the dispensary says that marijuana is becoming legal in the USA. A senator says that he thinks the drug works well for the state.

People cannot smoke marijuana in public in Nevada. The laws do not say that it is OK. Police can make people pay $600 if they do this.

Difficult words: legalise (make something legal), recreational marijuana (recreational marijuana is for fun, not for sick people), dispensary (a medical store/shop).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
