Legalization of Marijuana
Nevada’s new law legalizing recreational marijuana use for adults has Las Vegas poised to become a popular destination for the emerging industry of cannabis tourism. The new law was implemented on July 1st, much to the delight of locals, tourists, and industry experts seeking new business opportunities.
Proponents of the law anticipated a flux of new businesses and ancillary tourism, which is certainly beneficial to the state. New innovations are expected to propel the new market. The machine from the New York Post’s video, which can roll 100 joints within five minutes, is a prime example of this expanding technology. The new law is part of a nationwide trend that has shown positive results in other places, such as Colorado. Las Vegas just might pave the way for a new era in international marijuana tourism. The city could likely serve as a model to other destination cities looking to do the same.
