The Silver State is now the fifth to allow recreational marijuana sales.
Nevada is now the fifth state to host legal recreational marijuana sales.
Demand was high in the Silver State on Saturday as legal sales began. Four states voted to legalize recreational use back in November, but Nevada was the first to offer sales, with the Department of Taxation allowing early sales before the official deadline of Jan. 1, 2018.
