Pot Is Legal in Las Vegas—But You Still Can’t Smoke It
So you did it. You booked the flight, you booked the hotel and now you’re in Las Vegas, in the backseat of a hired car, on your way to buy some recreational marijuana.
Who knows—maybe you were one of the very first in line when the clock struck 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, July 1, and Nevada cannabis dispensaries were able to start selling over-the-counter to any adult 21 and older. If so, you have something in common with the crew that braved January cold and snow in Denver in 2014. You were there for an historic moment—the fourth state in the country to allow adults to buy weed, and the first of the four states that legalized marijuana on Election Day in November to record a sale.
But if you weren’t the first and haven’t yet made plans to take in Sin City’s latest delight, take heart: You, or any one of the 43 million people a year who visit Las Vegas every year, can still be the very first person to legally smoke marijuana in Las Vegas—whenever it is that the particular privilege is extended to the public.
Balkan States Move Toward Medical Marijuana
Three of the Balkan states to emerge from the ashes of Yugoslavia a generation ago are now among the first countries in the ex-communist world to move toward embracing medical marijuana.
Australian firm MGC Pharmaceuticals just announced a deal to distribute its cannabis-derived products in Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia. MGC is partnering with the Slovenian supplier Mikro+Polo to market its phytocannabinoid-derived Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) in the three countries, according to Australia’s Business News.
Perth-based MGC was established three years ago by veterans of the Israeli medical marijuana industry. Late last year, it harvested its first test crop of cannabis in Slovenia and has established a facility in the country’s capital, Ljubljana, where it is isolating cannabidiol (CBD) for use in its products, including a CBD-infused skincare ointment.
Agent Orange (Hybrid)
The Agent Orange strain of marijuana is a three way cross between Space Queen, Jack's Cleaner and Orange Velvet Skunk that delivers its wonders within just 55 and 65 days when cultivated indoors. AO is a hybrid mix of Sativa and Indica the develops very heavy buds, coated with white crystals and blazing orange hairs. It smells like stinky cheese mixed with a bit of diesel fuel and various spices. The taste is likewise spicy, yet sweet and full. The buzz is trippy; mixing feelings of calming body stones with energetic mental lucidity.
It’s summer, and Washington smells like weed. Everywhere, all the time.
