LAS VEGAS – The Las Vegas City Council is set to vote on a bill that would allow for the establishment of cannabis consumption lounges in the city. These lounges would be defined as businesses that sell or provide single-use, ready-to-consume cannabis products for individuals who are over the age of 21. These products would be consumed in a designated area on the premises.
Clark County had previously approved the opening of pot lounges at the end of the year, and now Las Vegas is poised to vote on its own set of regulations. If the regulations are approved, up to 15 licenses will be issued for locations within city limits.
The proposed regulations outlined in the bill include plans to prevent minors from entering the lounges, safety measures, and a rule that prohibits consumption outside or in public view. Additionally, there is a proposed 1,000-foot separation requirement between establishments to prevent them from being clustered together.
Pot lounges that are attached to a retail cannabis store will be subject to a one-time origination charge of $10,000, while independent pot lounges will face a $2,500 charge.
Overall, if the bill is approved, it would pave the way for the establishment of cannabis consumption lounges in Las Vegas. The proposed regulations aim to ensure the safety of patrons and prevent minors from accessing these establishments. The potential opening of these lounges could provide a new avenue for cannabis businesses in the city.
