City officials are warning those who use cannabis and CBD products to make sure you purchase them from licensed dispensaries. Unregulated products you purchase from so called “fake dispensaries” could contain harmful ingredients.

Proposed Ordinance Cracks Down On Fake Dispensaries

Apparently, there are quite a few stores passing themselves off as purveyors of licensed cannabis and CBD products. This is especially true in areas of Las Vegas that cater to tourists.

According to an article written by staff on, the Las Vegas City Council will be reviewing a new ordinance tomorrow (Wednesday, June 21) which would crack down on stores which sell unlicensed cannabis, CBD, and THC products. The cannabis industry is calling these types of stores “fake dispensaries.”

The Proposed Rule Changes

The ordinance that the City Council will be considering includes rules that would make these “fake dispensaries” post a sign outside of their location. The sign would need to be at least a foot high. And, per the article, it would need to state: “This location is not licensed to sell cannabis.”

The Fox 5 staff interviewed Layke Martin of the Nevada Dispensary Association. Martin says these “fake dispensaries” are selling products that are not regulated. Furthermore, they are untested. Tourists, and local customers, are being “scammed.”

Buyer Beware Of Fake Dispensaries

If you decide to purchase cannabis, CBD, or THC products from an unregulated, unlicensed store, you could become very ill. Regulatory agencies can only oversee shops and stores that are officially licensed dispensaries.

So, “buyer beware” if you purchase an untested product online, at a gas station, or in a strip mall. Your purchase comes with a great deal of risk. Make sure you do your shopping for cannabis products at a licensed dispensary. Additionally, you’ll want to see labeling on the products you purchase which lists ingredients. And, it should also be a lab-tested product.

9 Films to Watch On 4/20

Every holiday usually has some sort of activity attached to it. While 4/20’s activity is obvious, a movie marathon should definitely be added to the agenda.

In honor of this literal high holiday, here are nine films you should binge.

  • Friday

    A stoner classic that hasn’t aged a bit.

  • Half Baked

    They’re not drug dealers; they’re fundraisers.

  • Pineapple Express

    The entire cast is incredible, but Danny McBride steals the show.

  • Reefer Madness

    Sure, it was meant as a cautionary tale when it was released in 1936, but it’s hard to watch this classic now without laughing hysterically.

  • Dazed and Confused

    There are only three words to describe this iconic Richard Linklater film:  Alright, alright, alright.

  • Up In Smoke

    If someone writes a list about stoner movies, and a Cheech and Chong film isn’t on the list, does the list even exist?  The answer is “no.”

  • Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle

    Obviously, John Cho and Kal Penn deliver outstanding comedic performances, but is there a better actor playing himself in a cameo than Neil Patrick Harris as “Neil Patrick Harris?”

  • How High

    Magic weed gets Method Man and Redman accepted to Harvard. Hilarity ensues and gives new meaning to the phrase “higher learning.”

  • The Big Lebowski

    In addition to lighting up, fix yourself a White Russian (or two or four) as well.
