Members from various NORML chapters led efforts to collect 600 letters to Congress in support of marijuana reform from attendees of Las Vegas’ first Business-to-Consumer Cannabis conference, The Herban Expo.
Despite recreational marijuana use being legal in Nevada, the 42 million annual visitors don’t have any options for a place to consume. A newly proposed ordinance would allow the City of Las Vegas to issue Business Licenses specifically known as “Social Use Venues”, which would allow people to bring in their own cannabis to consume.
For decades, Las Vegas has been a place known to play fast and loose – and this is even becoming evident in our emerging Marijuana Industry. On January 16, 2018, hundreds of citizens, business owners, and marijuana consumers met to provide public comment on the proposed set of permanent regulations issued by the Nevada Department of Taxation at a public hearing.
