Hard to imagine anything other than a nap cafe. Who wants to smoke and then just... lounge?

Call it "40 Quarters and a Nickle". Add some Golden Tee, little TMNT, Street Fighter II... now that's a place'll take your rent money



You know, that could work. Sell a $10-$20 Blunt and a roll of tokens, couple of soft drink tickets, a snack for a set price. Pool tables, pinball, arcade video, lounge area with sports tv. Open mic nights, maybe even a poker room, chess and backgammon tables, etc.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I played pothead bridge several times a week in college (then didn't smoke for 30+ years) - we had a great time with it. Don't knock games while high til you've tried it.

I would smoke in a lounge with wall to wall Salvador Dali reproductions.

Anyway, the idea that a "smoking lounge' has to be any one particular thing is a really limited way to approach the idea.

And the way casinos run, they could change it every six months into something completely different.

People should be able to try it where they buy it, it's not like the shops don't stank already.

Same thing for cigarettes, point where the public picks out their poison, and the revenuer's extract their pound of flesh.

Casinos don't want any possible trouble with the Fed's. Besides, right now it's only the city, not the strip proper.

The lounges can't sell pot. They can only offers a place to enjoy your own. The utensils and entertainment they can offer will determine their success. Will people pay to smoke out of a $3,000 bong? Want to get high in a 69 Super Nova? How about getting high in the middle of a comic book shop? Smoke a joint while racking the pool table. Stock the place with a couple coeds and reel in the sheep.
This isn't just for tourist. I think they will get a lot of local support. The green rush is almost here. Be ready.

I love playing complicated strategy games buzzed
Not big on backgammon but know how to play. Yea its strategy but dice are involved so there is a luck element
I love chess, especially with a buzz. All strategy, no luck.
My favorite strategy game to play buzzed is Sid Meir's Civilization. Greatest strategy game ever made
Very complicated which is why I love it. Fantastic game to play while buzzed. Very addictive game. Absolutely love it.

This is why I am a low roller. I don't like gambling but I love playing games. So I play at the cheapest stakes.

Let them have them in casinos--it is legal to use, so why put too many restrictions on it.



Because pot is still against federal law and casinos don't want to jeopardize their casino license. The feds could shut them down for allowing illegal activity.

Its too bad they don't adopt this attitude when it comes to other shenanigans, such as, putting the occasional smack down on AP's, and not honoring promotions.

I will admit, it seems like they have been doing much better in recent years.

Shrug
I smoke and I have no interest in a lounge
I catch a buzz and go play golf
I catch a buzz and go play poker
I catch a buzz and go kayaking
I catch a buzz and go for a bike ride
I catch a buzz and go to a restaurant to satisfy the munchies :-)
I have no interest in catching a buzz and hanging out at some boring lounge


I think its a place to enjoy a very comfortable chair, a few games of chess, backgammon, etc.. perhaps some gratis high-quality chocolate in an atmosphere wherein there is no need to slurp booze all the time and the attractive females are not staring at your wallet.
