Upon arriving at Harry Reid International Airport, the question at the front of many tourists’ mind is “How can I score weed in Las Vegas without breaking the law?” The answer is both simple and complicated at the same time. Anyone 21 and over can legally buy cannabis from a dispensary. Just bring your driver’s license, passport, or another form of legal ID. Here’s the tricky part—the only place you’re legally allowed to consume cannabis is at a private residence. Public consumption lounges have yet to be legally approved and while you’ll catch the occasional whiff of reefer on the Strip, smoking in public spaces (including garages and parks) remains illegal. Cannabis use in hotel rooms is generally off-limits too, especially when casinos, which are heavily regulated, are on property.
So if you (or a friend) has a private home, great. Light one up. Some Airbnb rentals are 420-friendly (and a few even market themselves around it), but be clear on policies in advance. Stinking up somebody’s house without permission is bad form. Vapes, edibles, and other non-smoking forms of consumption are more discreet. Just be aware of the law, use your best judgment, and take advantage of Uber, Lyft, or another form of public transportation when high. Here’s the good news—cannabis dispensaries are everywhere these days. Technically, none are allowed on the Strip, but a few are within easy walking or driving distance. So look over the following suggestions and get familiar with the best places to legally buy weed in Las Vegas.
