is it legal to use marijuana in a smoking casino hotel room? legally and is it enforced?

and lastly what are the vape options at vegas dispensaries? do they have disposable carts? 510 threaded carts? and sell batteries?

edit: recommend a dispensary near the southpoint?
each hotel will have an individual policy on weed, but as far as i know, it's not allowed in any of them (yet).

yes, i've vaped inside casinos, and i've seen other people doing it. if you're sitting at a slot, pull the pen out and take a quick hit, nobody's going to look twice.

i've smoked weed inside dozens of hotel rooms. never had a problem. even before rec legalization, hotel hallways would stink like weed regularly. not legal, not really enforced. get a room at harrah's and the windows open.

most dispensaries will have every vape option and 99% of them fit the standard threads. but they all sell batteries too.

As far as I know, the only places to legally use it are in private homes. You can't use it in casinos, bars, hotels, and public spaces such as the sidewalk. It's a misdemeanor, but I'm not sure how often people actually get ticketed for it. Some casinos have posted signs about it, but a rub-and-tug might post a sign saying sex is not available and still give you a handjob. My guess is that they will be strict about blatant use in front of staff, but won't go around specifically looking for it.

The claim has been that casinos will not allow it so long as there are federal laws against marijuana because they risk losing their gaming licenses. This is highly unlikely to change so long as Jeff Sessions is Attorney General.

How to Weed in LV?

google hasnt been helpfull seems some articles are dated and the rules are constantly changing.

- can you walk into a dispensary with just a drivers license or passport(international citizen) and buy?

- can you just ask for a smoking room at any strip hotel for your stay and good to go?

Re: How to Weed in LV?

Augie pretty much has it. All you need is a driver's license or passport showing that you are old enough, and you can buy weed.

The law says that you can only consume weed in private residences - not in public, not in a casino, not in your hotel room. But in truth, if you are somewhat subtle, you can get away with it. Smoke outside somewhere where you aren't that close to other people, and try not to be obvious, and nothing will happen. Similarly, you will probably be able to get away with smoking in your hotel room if you don't smoke up the place too much. Take smaller hits and hold it longer so you aren't exhaling that much smoke. If you are subtle you ARE still breaking the law, but your chances of consequences are fairly small. I would definitely not suggest smoking on a casino floor, though.

Re: How to Weed in LV?

go with edibles or a disposable vape pen. i still wouldn't openly vape on the casino floor, but you should be ok in your room, anywhere outside, or even in a washroom.

True story: If Security at House of blues spots your vape pen they will tell you leave it in your car or room.

How do they know the difference between a tobacco vape pen and a cannabis vape pen?

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

Also, going to Vegas tomorrow for a week and a bunch of us want to score some vape pens. We're at Aria and PH. Whats the closet shop to our hotel and any recommendations on what exact pens to buy? I've never been to one of these places before as I'm from TN and weed is the devil according to our lawmakers. I prefer a "body" buzz, and HATE a "head" buzz high as I get bad panic attacks.

Thanks!

Its pretty obvious actually if you are a smoker. There are only a few makers of batteries available and they are branded. I suppose some asshats have ruined it for everyone by causing a disturbance.

i went to Apothecary which is just up from the Gold Coast. Seemed like a good operation overall, although i am only comparing to my hometown shops--i have not been to any of the others in vegas. I would ask the staff there what they recommend for your "body" high. They might steer you towards edibles, but be careful if you are not used to them. All the warnings you hear are true.

Yea I've never tried edibles due to all the **** I've heard. I'm guessing I want a strain high in CBD and low in THC?

It's actually pretty casual; in fact, I don't think the term "dispensary" is really even used for the rec shops. It's just a shop that sells cannabis. No biggie.
I hadnt thought of the tracking, because it is cash only, but they do scan your ID at purchase. Hmmmm. Not that I care if there is record of the heaps of drugs ive bought.

Put them in the fridge in your room. Eat them then go out. Yeah I also disliked the customer service at dispensary in Cali. I'd go in looking for something specific. Then they'd try to sell me stuff, "Hey we have this weed called Charlie Sheen". "I just want edibles thanks."

If weed triggers anxiety it should be a pretty easy choice to avoid it.

Nothing drastic will happen. Anything Scrooge McSaggyNuts tries to do will be fought tooth and nail in court, and it will take years. Nothing to see here.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

So I got a cake in Amsterdam a few months ago, only ate like 1/4 of it like the guy said, waited about 30 minutes - and nothing. So ate the next 1/4 , waited another 20 minutes - still nothing. The coffee shop I went to was highly recommended. Is it more likely I got a weak batch, or I have some kind of mutant tolerance?

While I agree nothing drastic will happen in Las Vegas, Sessions preferring to hash it out in court is not the reason.

He could unleash fury just by telling the feds to enforce the laws already on the books - massive coordinated raids on the biggest dispensaries.

But he won't do that to a swing state. He'll start in California.

And he'll wait until his raging anti-immigration boner has splurted every last illegal immigrant (and whatever legal immigrants they can catch in the crossfire) with his man juice.

Whether you agree with him or not, his singular determination to push through his most important agendum is to be admired. He recused himself from the Russia investigation and got shat all over by Trump and just took another Viagra and kept hammering.

IDK how much you weight but this is what I do. I eat two doses of the edible. Generally nothing happens so I wait 20 min. One more bite and then it sends me into hyperspace. Works every time.

so in the case of the cake I would have eaten like one and half pieces waited 20 minutes then have another small slice.

There can be a great deal of inconsistency with SOME edibles. When the batch is made, some can be stronger than others within the same batch. Start with 10 milligrams and go up slowly. I find 10 is right for me but others prefer 15 or even 20. Start low and go slow. I took it with a friend and I definitely felt it at 10 and he didn't. Would also depend on other factors such as your weight and if your taking on a full or empty stomach.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

Some of you may be underestimating how long it takes edibles to kick in. I have a really low tolerance to them -- 10 mgs can often get me pretty high -- yet it's not uncommon for me to feel no effect for 45-75 minutes after taking the edible.
