Las Vegas, Las Vegas Strip Get Ready for Huge Cannabis Rule Change
Nevada has legal marijuana consumption. Las Vegas has a number of dispensaries, but tourists can't legally smoke cannabis in their hotel rooms. This has led to people smoking and vaping legally purchased marijuana in parking lots and on the Las Las Vegas Strip. The city will soon be home to legal cannabis consumption lounges.
The Las Vegas consumption lounges may open before the end of the year. The louches will be located within an existing adult-use dispensary or in new independent lougges that will sell cannabis and cannabis products.
Hanley believes that casinos should welcome consumption lounges as they will give tourists a legal place to smoke and consume cannabis. He thinks that providing such louks for tourists could increase overall tourism to Las Vegas.
The Street is looking for information about the development of consumption lounges. Existing adult-use dispensaries will have the option of adding a consumption lounge to their premise. Independent lou lounge license fees are much less than the license for a dispensary to add a lounge.
Consumption lounges will be able to serve cannabis, but they will have some limits. Loungs will sell single-use portions of cannabis and products such as flower, concentrates, edibles, capsules, tinctures, topicals, and transdermal patches. They will not be allowed to sell alcohol, nicotine, or tobacco.
Lounges will be restricted to patrons 21 years of age or older. Cannabis and cannabis products will need to be consumed on-site only. The loungs will have to protect themselves from public view. It is illegal for casino operators Caesars and MGM to have consumption lougues on their properties.
