The sale of marijuana in Las Vegas is coming out of the shadows and moving into shopping centers in 40 locations in Clark County. A new Nevada law allows medical-grade marijuana to be sold legally at dispensaries that look and feel more like Apple stores than a clandestine shop trying to avoid a raid by law enforcement.
The dispensaries expect to open next year and will feature state-of-the-art security measures to protect against robbery and theft. Access will be strictly limited to individuals with medical authorization to purchase marijuana. The new law allows each city to decide where the dispensaries will be allowed to open.
