Nevada Makes Marijuana Legal – level 2

10-07-2017 07:00

Nevada legalised the selling of recreational marijuana, which makes it the eighth American state.

In Las Vegas, Nevada, people visited a marijuana dispensary. One woman said that she was happy that Nevada has started legalising the drug. The boss of the dispensary said that he feels that the prohibition of marijuana is ending slowly. A local politician also said that he felt the drug fits very well into the lifestyle and tourism of the state.

Despite the new laws, police can fine a person $600 if they find him or her smoking marijuana in public.

Difficult words: recreational (for fun), dispensary (a clinic that sells medicine), prohibition (when a law keeps you from doing something), fine (punish, make someone pay money for doing something illegal).

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