Poll question: If you were on the LV city council, how would you have voted for the legalization of Cannabis consumption lounges?

On Wednesday the Las Vegas City Council voted to legalize marijuana social-use lounges. Marijuana is already legal to purchase in sin city but buyers will soon be able to blaze away freely in specified locations. Already licensed dispensaries will be given first shot at lounge permits and could open as early as January 2020.

There are, obviously, a few restrictions. A lounge must be at least 1000 feet away from a school or casino. No alcohol is allowed on the property. Lounges must be filtered so no smoke escapes (like a smoking lounge in a Macau casino).

Not everyone is happy. Some casino owners are complaining about having to deal with even more public intoxication issues.

Full Story Here.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I just seen that on the news. I thought, A lounge with no gaming, well that's some lost income. They better make the lounges really cool.

Distant from a casino or distant from a casino property? Some casinos have humungous parking lots so it would be easy to have a lounge on the property but sufficiently distant from the casino itself.

I have no interest in a smoking lounge and I smoke
1st off, stuff is so potent these days, you just want a puff or 2.
The way to go is to give bars the freedom to allow or ban
They can choose to keep the bar MJ free or they can allow it.
Some may have an issue with the smell
Some may look at allowing it as a competitive edge
Let the free market do its work

Personally I think they should designate some of the High Roller cars (vegas ferris wheel) weed lounges.

I wonder how they monetize it. In Amsterdam, you could theoretically walk into a "coffee shop", smoke, and leave without actually buying anything. Too many people would abuse that privilege in Vegas, they couldn't allow it. At the same time, it'd be stupid to enforce a membership for tourists. I could see them forcing you to buy a gram at $20, maybe prepaid for food vouchers.

I certainly hope they don't decide to go super high end and try and milk $100+ out of you. Sadly, that might be the right financial decision close to the strip/downtown.

That just seems chintzy, somehow. I mean, think of all the street people you're denying a contact high with this rule. The world could stand to mellow out. The smoke goes wasted this way...kidding, but only sort of.

It would certainly be 1000 feet from a school property line. I would guess it would be the same for a casino property line as well. 1000 feet isn't that far, less than a quarter mile (around 1.5 furlongs). The eligible dispensaries presumably already qualify.

They could gouge you on the munchies, $15 for a bag of Cheetos. Why not? Many Vegas strip clubs charge $20 a beer.
