Recreational Pot May Be Legal In Vegas Soon

smoke-1216032_960_720Ever since Colorado legalized recreational pot, more states are taking a look at doing the same thing. Nevada may be the next state to let citizens light up weed and not have to fear the law.

There is a group now working hard to get the support it needs to get the measure on the ballet as early as this fall.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal:

In an email announcement last week, the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol put out information it hopes will convince voters to support the initiative petition.

The measure would legalize the possession of an ounce or less of marijuana for recreational use for people who are at least 21 years old. It would prohibit giving or selling marijuana to minors, driving under the influence of marijuana and using marijuana in public. The Nevada Department of Taxation would issue licenses for the legal pot trade.

The whole story is here.

It is probably safe to assume that should the measure pass, this would add yet another reason, a major one for some, to visit Las Vegas.
