Las Vegas has been known by several names throughout the years. Sin City, Gambling Capital of the World, Glitter Gulch, Entertainment Capital of the World, City of Lights just to name a few. The Cannabis Buzz that has started the Green Rush coming to Nevada, the Silver State; a new nickname is being touted: New Amsterdam. After all, the Recreational Marijuana Market is coming to town. For some reason Jackson Five’s “Santa Claus is coming to Town” is playing in my head in tandem as my fingers strike these computer keys. Random! Nah, just a little jubilation as I think of what is ahead for the Las Vegas’ Cannabis community this summer. As of now the Recreational market in Nevada should go live in less than 4 months, ETA is July 2017.
That being said, Las Vegas Dispensaries have popped up all over the city in anticipation of catering to needs of the Medical Marijuana and Recreational Marijuana markets. There’s up to sixty Dispensaries currently located throughout the City, with the expectation of many more to come. It will soon become quite easy for the Las Vegas cannabis community to access the best of cannabis that Vegas has to offer. I am sure that there will soon be more marijuana friendly locales opening in the near future. It certainly wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine Canna Cafes and Canna Lounges adjacent to the Dispensaries. Ganja lovers sitting on patios enjoying baked goodies, thirst quenching Cannabis Cup drinks (If you don’t know about this, you better Google it for the recipe!) and all while Bob Marley plays in the background. That’s that Las Vegas Hemp Life! Or it would be if it actually manifests.
Las Vegas currently has an average of 43 million visitors per year, and I expect that to increase as well within the next couple of years. If you plan on visiting Las Vegas/New Amsterdam in the future and plan on being a part of the Green Rush, book a Signature CannaBus Tour! Let us be your partner while you explore what our memorable city has to offer. Just remember if you visit before July, medical cards will apply. Hope to see you riding with us soon!
