penrose wrote:I understand that marijuana legally prescribed in California is not legal to possess in Black Rock City. The following scenario comes to mind.
- Person with a condition that requires medicinal marijuana displays symptoms of pain
- A LEO notices and asks what's the trouble, asks if they have medications
- Person says yes, they have medications at camp
Has LE now sufficient cause to search camp? If so, they will find the legal pain pills etc, but also the CA-legal marijuana stash. Is the person in pain now also subject to arrest?
In this scenario, someone in camp who is not as likely to be searched might volunteer to store it. I appreciate thoughts on this scenario / thought process.

That should answer it.
If your condition cannot go through the burn without medication, you might want to consult your doctor for a NV-legal alternative for the time of the burn, if only as backup. Getting party drugs confiscated is a bummer, getting important medical drugs confiscated is a real problem that you should try to avoid.
I would expect NV LEOs to show as much tolerance for medical marijuana as CA LEOs for automatic weapons.

That's a big headache you're bringing down on everyone--including the first ones you'd ask to bail you out...

Probable cause? Anything can be "probable" especially some crazily dressed guy in pain talking about his "medication" in vague terms.
So keep your yap shut and all will be fine. No probable cause to deal with on your illegal marijuana.
