Cannabis Lounges May Be Coming To Las Vegas
Cannabis lounges may be coming to Las Vegas in the very near future. A group of advisory law makers have stated that cities and counties in the state may legally approve lounges to help with the current dilemma that is now taking place with recreational consumers having no place to consume. This means that dispensaries may have the opportunity to open a lounge right next door for their customers. It also opens the door for music festivals and such to apply for a temporary licenses to have consumption lounges at their events, or you may soon see cannabis friendly yoga studios!
Clark County, through its marijuana advisory panel, has discussed the prospects of marijuana lounges, including a pilot program that would allow dispensaries to let patrons smoke inside the shops. The panel is expected to meet next month.
Senator Segerblom who spearheaded the recreational sales of cannabis in Nevada pushed for a bill in the 2017 Legislature that would have given local governments the authority to permit consumption lounges and other forms of public pot use. That bill died after Gov. Brian Sandoval expressed concern over the concept of pot lounges.
But the Legislative Counsel Bureau opinion breathes renewed life into that push. And Segerblom is optimistic that the Las Vegas Valley could see such lounges in 2018.
