Cannabis consumption lounges are one step closer to becoming a reality in Nevada.
The Nevada Cannabis Control Board (CCB) announced Sept. 14 that it will accept applications for consumption lounges beginning at 8 a.m. Oct. 14 and ending at 5 p.m. Oct. 27. Applications must be submitted in the Accela Cannabis Customer Portal.
CCB officials approved regulations governing consumption lounges in June, roughly one year after Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed legislation to legalize consumption lounges.
A “yes” to consumption lounges is a decision that was in limbo in Nevada for years, as lounges “showed promise as part of a Las Vegas ordinance back in 2017 and again in 2019, but due to setbacks and political debates from the rival gaming industry, the legislation never became a reality,” Cannabis Business Times previously reported.
