The board plans to award the first licenses this fall
Nevada’s Cannabis Compliance Board on Tuesday voted to approve regulations paving the way for cannabis consumption lounges in the state, according to a release from the board.
The first state-sanctioned cannabis consumption lounges could potentially open before the end of the year, according to the regulatory board.
Though recreational cannabis use is legal, Nevada law has, so far, only allowed for consumption at private residences.
The sole exception has been the lounge on tribal land operated by the Paiute Tribe just north of downtown Las Vegas.
Still, it’s common for tourists and others to openly smoke marijuana throughout Las Vegas’s resort corridor, especially inside parking garages.
