I think most lounges will be attached to a dispensary so the sales are simply next door :-)



Initially, lounges will be next to Dispensaries because they will be the first permits given out. They have already gone thru the licensing and background checks. Eventually, it will be like a liquor permit and take months from the application to final permits.
Clark County appears to be no where near the point of issuing anything, so it's only dispensaries within the City of Las Vegas that are opening them right now.

I am pretty sure that they are not allowed to sell any drugs in the lounges,

Not allowed to sell or permit possession of booze, but can sell pot... at least as contemplated by LV city counsel so far. Could also sell stuff like the aforementioned chocolate and gourmet coffee.

The initial batch of permits are only available to places licensed to already sell pot within the city.The permits for other lounges are not expected to include sale licenses. The lawyer for the group I'm working with still thinks it's two years before it sees any fruit. I suspect this will be a patronage boondoggle.

The "dispensary first" path seems the logical way to go although perhaps not the fairest. Entrepreneurs at the council meeting, who didn't have a dispensary, were furious at being left out in the cold. They have a point. If billryan's two-year estimate holds up they'll be opening against already established and experienced competitors, some of whom might have already achieved some fame or name recognition the way trendy restaurants and nightclubs tend to do.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I think the real money is to found in the Clark County permits, not the City ones. Those are the ones I'm interested in.

Here is the current tally for today's Denver magic mushroom vote...
------------------

Initiative 301

An initiative to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms, or magic mushrooms, by making it lawful for a person 21 or older to possess, use and home cultivation magic mushrooms. It would also establish a panel to review the law’s impact on public health and safety and prevent Denver from using public funds or resources to prosecute people charged with psilocybin-related crimes.
Results:

Yes/for: 45.43 percent

No/against: 54.57 percent

-------------------
It looks like this can will be kicked down the road to Oregon in 2020.

Wow! I checked this morning and saw the gap had narrowed but "Yes" still trailed by 4800 votes (about 3%). The times they are a changing eh?

Psilocybe mushrooms grow wild throughout the Pacific Northwest, especially in Oregon. Even in municipal areas, they can be found growing in landscaping mulch and bark. The research for PTSD treatment is very promising. I'd like to see this pass in other places.

Sheldon Adelson is an anti-cannabis crusader--his son died of a heroin overdose--but even his millions in political spending haven't seemed to slow the tide of legal cannabis in Nevada. I don't think the Venetian will be lobbying to open a cannabis lounge anytime soon.
