LAS VEGAS - Marijuana consumption lounges are one step closer to coming to the Las Vegas city limits.
City Council voted 5-1 against a motion by Councilwoman Victoria Seaman on Wednesday. She wanted to stop businesses from applying for a cannabis lounge license from the state. Nevada will open the application window for licensing weed lounges for 10 days from Oct.14-27. The decision by council will allow businesses including dispensaries to apply for the state license while the city moves forward to create its own ordinance and regulations.
“It's going to bring, you know, a whole new vibe and atmosphere, “said cannabis consumer Erik Baum. “As opposed to going to a bar, you don't have to go out and drink, you can go out and smoke socially with your friends."
