Infographics: Nevada's Medical Marijuana Program by the Data

May 22, 2017


The infographics below are based on the most recent April data released from the Nevada Medical Marijuana Patient Registry. Looking through the data, there's a few interesting highlights:


  • There's 27,952 registered patients.

  • There's 2,034 registered caregivers.

  • There's 515 physicians recommending medical marijuana.

  • With a patient to physician ratio of roughly 54:1, Nevada comes in far below Massachusetts which has a patient to physician ratio of over 184:1.

  • The largest population of registered patients lives in Clark County, which includes Las Vegas. 

  • The most common qualifying condition is severe pain with 23,780 patients.

  • The next most common qualifying condition is muscle spasms with 3,293 patients.



Below is a full breakdown of patients by qualifying condition (patients can have more than one qualifying condition.





There's a ton of useful information that can be gathered from state-level medical marijuana program data. Nevada shares far more information than other states, but it's all helpful. Learning what age groups and which qualifying conditions are most common can help everyone from physicians to cultivators provide patients with better treatment.
