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.


I was picturing a cigar den, where they pretty much sit around and just smoke
If they are going to cater to me with food, entertainment and games for a fair price
I'm in :-)

Even at a cigar bar with your own private humidor, you usually can get a very fine Brandy.
I think the marijuana bars will have to provide fine chocolates and gourmet coffee free of charge as well the game diversions being free; you might view it as a place to socialize with those who also go kayaking, etc.

How do you propose they make money?

In a followup story, dispensaries are now trying to figure out the safety and security concerns. This KVVU article (briefly) discusses the issue with Acres Cannabis VP Tim Lozott...

Quote:

Lozott said anyone who consumes any sort of marijuana will have to find a designated driver or another way of getting home.

The company's plan was to have a designated Uber, Lyft, and shuttle service for patrons. The shuttle service will be set to drive customers home to a safe location.

He said they also will increase security and security cameras.

"We're looking if anybody's falling asleep, or having too much. We're going to be increasing our security efforts," Lozott said.


Yeah, I can see pot lounge shuttles (imagine their decor) becoming a common sight on The Strip.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I thought I was joking when writing out the poll selections but, in this crazy 21st century, today's joke is tomorrow's reality. It seems Denver will soon vote on legalizing magic mushrooms. (Oregon will as well in 2020.) This will not be for recreation but rather for medicinal use and there are studies to back it up. Still, this is the same road that led the legalization of marijuana so who knows? Maybe the next generation of Vegas tourists will be hanging out in oxygen/hookah/weed/mushroom lounges--no casino or strip club required. Sin City indeed.

You can easily over dose on magic mushrooms. In addition, you will pass a point where you start "tripping" which is dangerous to the brain as you may not come back....I hope they defeat this.

I wonder how they monetize it.



Do you also wonder how they monetize strip clubs?

I'm pretty sure it'll be very similar except instead of titties, you're going to have trichomes.

Instead of pussy, you're gonna have brownies.

Instead ass jiggling, you're going to have THC-infused jello-shots.

Advertising where people are getting their product and having people "go on runs" and "take donations" towards "runs" past and future are going to be all under the table.

Dollar bills are going to be flying in the form of "tips" and "donations" and weed will be equally free.

IE: replace "lap dance" with "hitting the nail" and replace "show me your tits" with "take a hit off this spliff" .. and you have the formula. Add in some club-style marketing where you can get your name in lights for providing free product for everyone in the shop (night club style) and you're profiting handily without even having to charge everyone in the "club."
