Dispensaries, and marijuana are definitely plentiful in Las Vegas, but then what?
You’re in from out of town, you go out for drinks, and you can drink them – right there at the bar you bought them at.
You can buy marijuana in Las Vegas, but there’s no place tourists can actually smoke it. Well – that’s about to change.
Las Vegas has a cannabis problem. The city gladly allows the sale of marijuana for recreational use, but it’s only allowed to be smoked in private residences. That means people visiting the Las Vegas Strip, Fremont Street, or any other part of the city are technically breaking the law when they light up to enjoy
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has better things to do than bust people for smoking pot, but not having places where cannabis can legally be smoked has led to other problems.
First, the Las Vegas Strip — actually, any crowded place in Las Vegas that’s outside — now smells like pot.
Second, the adults who visit Las Vegas to engage in “sins” like gambling, indulgent eating, having a few alcoholic beverages, and even going to strip clubs, do not have to hide those things. But tourists who have legally purchased marijuana in Las Vegas, have to either blatantly break the law or smoke in hidden corners of parking lots, or in back alleys. One might compare it to prohibition – it’s there, but we have to sneak around to enjoy it.
Neither of the seedy options above benefit the city, so Nevada has taken steps to correct the problem.
The state has set the framework for legal consumption lounges and two interesting players are getting very close to giving Las Vegas tourists a place to legally, comfortably, and happily light up their joints, pipes, and other methods of smoking cannabis.
And of course, there are always drive-thru’s for convenience.
Whatever you do in Las Vegas – in a soon to be cannabis lounge, or at your best friends place – please do it responsibly.
