Nevada Advances Bill To Freeze Cannabis Social Use Lounges For Two Years

The Assembly on Thursday voted 39-1 to advance AB 533 to the state Senate

The Nevada Assembly has passed a bill that would put a two-year moratorium on cannabis lounges throughout the state

The Assembly on Thursday voted 39-1 to advance AB 533 to the state Senate, one step closer to the governor’s desk.

The bill advanced with an amendment introduced by the general counsel of Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak that includes a two-year moratorium on consumption lounge licensing throughout the Silver State to allow the Cannabis Compliance Board to study how lounges would work. The amendment challenges a Las Vegas City Council ordinance passed earlier this month allowing dispensaries to open lounges where tourists can smoke marijuana in a cozy setting, perhaps with a meal and live entertainment.
