I congratulate the City of Las Vegas and it’s proposed Marijuana Social Use Ordinance. Las Vegas would be the second city to adopt a social use ordinance and the first to include a low-level (11%) liquor sells option. It’s refreshing to know that the ordinance may be available to anyone that qualifies and the licensing fees seem to be manageable. If they move forward with this ordinance as it is, this will be a win for the small business person that is still looking to be in the Nevada Cannabis industry.
Currently Nevada has no open consumption laws. The regulations are written that you must consume in the privacy of your own home. If the city moves forward with this ordinance it will be the resolve to our Cannabis legalization hospitality issue.
I do want to point out that the inability to sell food or hard liquor in the same space may prove to be an economical disadvantage in this space. Although you can sell non cannabis products, I just don’t know if selling t-shirt, cups, hats and other dosing apparatuses will make up the income? I suggested that they look at offering an apparatus rental program that focuses on sanitation similar to the Hooka Lounges. However, If I were looking to get a license I would definitely apply for the low-level license
It is my pleasure to serve this community
The license will be 5k a year and the zoning ordinances are the same as other state MME’s. The biggest win for the community is that the new proposed ordinance won’t specify whether the marijuana had to come from a dispensary or not. The city is opting to leave that up to the licensee’s with an expectation of the licensee spelling out there security plan in their application.
I am super proud of the Nevada Cannabis Community and the City of Las Vegas for working together and showing the WORLD we are #Vegasstrong
