It’s true – what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But mostly because you can’t transport cannabis over state lines.
Adult-use cannabis was legalized in Nevada in 2016, and residents and visitors alike can purchase up to an ounce of flower or 3.5 grams of concentrate at a time. If you’re heading to Las Vegas, you’re likely wondering where you can find quality cannabis products.
But first, a point of distinction. While dispensaries are easy to come by, consumption areas are not. Per Nevada law, you can only consume cannabis on private property, not in public.
Casinos and hotel rooms do not count as private property, leaving visitors with few options on where to consume their weed. Violators of these cannabis laws only face a misdemeanor charge, but also up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
This presents an obvious problem for 420-friendly tourists, which Nevada is hoping to fix with the addition of consumption lounges. The state is in the process of finalizing regulations for these businesses, and licensing is expected to happen after. Whether or not these businesses will open in 2022 remains to be seen.
In the meantime, you can find high-quality weed products, educated staff, and good prices at any of the following dispensaries during your Las Vegas trip.
