Nevada Makes Marijuana Legal – level 3
In the US, the state of Nevada is the eighth state to legalise the sale of recreational marijuana.
In Las Vegas, Nevada tourists and locals waited in line at one marijuana dispensary. One woman said that she saw that other cities were legalising marijuana and edibles, and she was happy that Nevada has done the same.
The CEO of the dispensary said that he believes that ‘the prohibition of cannabis is ending slowly’. A local senator also visited the dispensary and said that he feels that marijuana fits very well into the lifestyle and tourism of the state.
Despite the new laws, police can fine someone $600 if they catch him or her smoking marijuana in public.
Difficult words: recreational (for fun), dispensary (a clinic that specialises in selling medicine), edible (food with marijuana cooked into it), CEO (the chief executive officer of a company who makes the major decisions), prohibition (using a law to prevent people from doing something), cannabis (the scientific name for marijuana).
