In states like Nevada and New York, there’s a real “if we build it the tourists will come” vibe.
Just as the summer travel season kicks off, at the tail end of pandemic isolation no less, states and countries that allow recreational marijuana use are vying to be the next hotbed for cannabis tourism.
For the most part, that means visit unique dispensaries in Los Angeles, take a harvest tour in California’s Emerald Triangle, or plan a rustic canna-experience in Mexico. What’s the next big thing on everyone’s weed agenda: on-site consumption lounges. Just look what it’s done for Canada and Amsterdam.
All eyes are on Nevada
In Nevada, Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) recently signed a bill allowing consumption lounges in the state — both retail operations that could add a lounge and independent lounges that sell licensed products — for adults 21 and older.
