What Is Schedule I and Why Is Marijuana on the List, Anyway?
People Line Up to Buy Recreational Marijuana in Nevada
Hundreds of people lined up in the middle of the night to be among the first to buy legal marijuana in Nevada, which became the fifth state to allow recreational sales on Saturday morning. Tourists and locals alike were in the often-long lines celebrating the first sales that came after voters in Nevada approved legalization in November.
Now anyone who is 21 and older can buy up to an ounce of marijuana in Nevada. And while tourists are expected to make up a big percentage of the customers, marijuana can only be consumed in a private home. That’s why dispensaries seem to be banking on the popularity of edibles, particularly in Las Vegas.

Budtending Is a Real and Important Job
Budtenders working in weed dispensaries have a lot of influence over their customers, especially those who aren’t sure what they need, want or are looking for.
Thankfully, most budtenders are knowledgeable and very helpful.
While many started off behind the counters when the industry was still operating in the so-called “legal gray” area, they have learned on, and off, the job.
One young woman told LA Weekly that with widespread legalization, budtending has become a job to be taken seriously.

What Happens If I’m Charged with a Marijuana DUI?
While there are some major differences in the way police handle cannabis-impaired driving and drunk driving, most court systems hand down similar consequences for both offenses. If the court convicts you for driving while under the influence of marijuana, you can expect the ramifications to include a license suspension, a drug and alcohol awareness class, fines, probation and even jail time.
However, the way the prosecution will build their case against you is very different with stoned driving. They cannot simply conduct a breath test after pulling you over to determine if you used cannabis recently.
For example, in Washington State, police have two options for proving a driver is under the influence of marijuana. These options are:
- Observing signs, conducting field tests, and bringing in an officer trained in drug recognition; or
- Conducting a marijuana blood test to determine whether the driver is over the per se limit of 5 ng/mL.
