Earlier this summer the Nevada State Legislature did pass bill AB 341 which legalizes cannabis consumption lounges. Gov. Sisolak signed the bill into law on June 4 but it wasn’t expected that any consumption lounges would be open until at least 2022 due to licensing requirements. Las Vegas does have one consumption lounge that is open for business. The NuWu Cannabis Marketplace downtown on Main St. has a “tasting lounge” that is open to the public. The tasting room had initially opened late in 2019 but closed early in 2020 due to the pandemic. The lounge reopened on Memorial Day weekend. The NuWu Marketplace sits on sovereign Paiute Tribe land and was able to open the tasting room ahead of Gov. Sisolak’s two year waiting period. If you want to go get your smoke on an appointment is required and you will be required to wear a mask until you start to partake. The NuWu Cannabis Marketplace is located at 1235 Pauite Circle off Main Street in downtown Las Vegas.
