Legal bud smokers will have the ability to seek out lounges where they can light up in places serving alcohol, perhaps not in Las Vegas — although not in casinos, and not on the vegas Strip.

City spokesman Jace Radke stated it could take for its 20 or so recreational marijuana earnings dispensaries in Las Vegas for ingestion lounges to open.
In surrounding Clark County who regulate the Strip lawmakers have considered allowing lounges but determined in February to await rules.
Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, is proposing the state Legislature make a Cannabis Compliance Board to oversee the industry. The governor’s spokeswoman, Helen Kalla, said that ingestion lounges would be a problem for the board to take into account.
The vegas Review-Journal reported that the City Council member that is only to oppose the couch thought was Stavros Anthony, a retired Las Vegas police captain.
