Given the party mentality on the strip, there is no doubt that many revelers will mix alcohol and weed, with mixed results.

Back in college, when we had a good buzz from mixing the two, we said we were "droned," and if it was lousy we felt "strunk."

While I would not partake in Marijuana, casinos of course will have to deal with the effects of people having edibles. That will be by far the most consumed product by tourists.

I understand why security staff at Casinos hate it as they will have to drag out stoned individuals and more than likely there will be lawsuits suing casinos for allowing gamblers to gamble while high.

The 2.5 oz limit sale over two weeks I think has gone away due to privacy concerns.

People are all smoking pot all the time now anyways. I don't think I have been to a parking garage lately that I haven't smelled it in. I smell it all the time in the elevators and walking past people's rooms.

I haven't noticed anyone getting in trouble for it or acting any different.

I have not been to Vegas in a long time, maybe 20 years. I had a very bad day and it has punished me for that long. I am going back for the first time in August. I don't ever remember anyone smoking in a casino, is it true. Are people allowed to smoke cigarettes in a casino? I don't smoke, never have, I do enjoy weed, it calms me. As a Doctor of Pharmacy for 32 years now, I can definitively attest to the studies on THC and CBD prove that they are both less harmful than any medicine I dispense and that includes OTC medicines. Caffeine is exponentially more addictive and many times more dangerous than THC. I am thrilled that the USA is finally following the example set by the Netherlands, and finally allowing research facilities here to test this substance without the researches going to Federal prison as a convicted felon. But we all know, what the tobacco industry has known for 50 years....... it's all about money.

Just wanted to say, I like your Steely Dan musical quote. It certainly applies to me.

Marijuana might be the single most useful plant on earth in its variety of applications, and grows in almost any climate. The only way to make money off of it is either to regulate and tax it, or outlaw it.

Better for you than either tobacco or booze, and many beneficial effects , especially pharmaceutical. Pretty much impossible to overdose.

Let freedom ring. Backyard gardens for all. Free market.

Cannabis is not just safer or better than any other substance currently used to alter your personal reality, it is THE CURE FOR CANCER, and even if that was the only positive effect, of which it presents dozens of other benefits without side effect problems, I would only own a single home. How will my 127 hospital discharge units (across 38 states) make the ridiculous profits we demand, if we don't hold on to our patients for 10's of thousands of unnecessary dollars spent on their cancer treatments, monthly, if we allow patients to be cured before they die in agony? (requiring more drugs for their painful end), for even more profit.
All of my oncology patients spend between $8,000 and $35,000 dollars each month for about 2 years avg. before their demise. Cannabis will take my salary down from $37,000 monthly to about $20,000 monthly...... follow the money.

You would be arrested for growing tomatoes if we could prove they cured cancer. I know this is putting a spotlight on the dark side of healthcare, but it's just the tip of a very large Titanic iceberg. We make money by keeping you ill, but just sick enough for you to keep holding on, and keep paying. I have just retired, so I can say these things without recourse, and I still collect insane amounts of cash from these hospitals. So I can spend my summers in Aspen and fly to Vegas to deposit $100,000 at a casino in one night and move-on to a northern Cali. house for the fall and then back to South Florida for Dec., Jan, Feb, and then Amsterdam to my Herengracht canal apartment and party through the spring. Life sucks, not for myself, definitely for my patients.

Don't hate me, I wouldn't make a ripple in the Healthcare Ocean of corruption.

They've been knocking on doors at 4am at the Flamingo trying to find out the rooms where smells are coming from.

One lady told me she thought someone was breaking into her room and was terrified and did not answer the door. She said the front desk called and told her she was required to unlock the door. When she opened the door she said they were trying to find the source of the smell.

It was some little old lady who I don't think was smoking weed....

It's really terrible how they are handling this.

Isn't it true if they smoke it using vaporizers, there is no smoke and smell? Maybe casinos will need to rent them in the minibar.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

No smoke (just vapor like what you see with e-cigs) but it does smell a bit. The odor isn't so much like burned weed as unburned weed.
