The Regulation of Marijuana Initiative, or Question 7 in Nevada, is an act that will be voted on in the upcoming 2006 United States general election by all registered Nevada state citizens. It will amend the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) to allow for up to one ounce of marijuana to be purchased by individuals 21 years of age or older in a regulated, controlled, and state-taxed system.

The initiative will amend the NRS by inserting several sections legally defining terms such as "marijuana", "paraphernalia", and others, protect adults over the age of 21 from arrest or jail time for possession of up to one ounce of marijuana, maintain current underage marijuana penalties, and increase penalties for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of any illegal substance, amongst a slew of other provisions. It will go into effect on November 26, 2006 if passed.
