Recreational Marijuana Sales In Nevada Exceed Expectations
On Saturday July 1st 2017, Nevada became the fifth state to start selling recreational marijuana to adults. Weed Shops in Las Vegas had extremely long lines that weekend wanting to purchase the now legal substance. Tourists and locals are able to walk into any dispensary, with valid ID, and purchase up to an ounce of weed and other marijuana edibles and concentrates.
Many people are predicting that Nevada will quickly outsell other states like Colorado and Washington due to the 45 million tourists who visit Las Vegas each year. Tourists from out of state are expected to make two out of every three purchases based on the past week’s stats.
Tax collection data will not be available for several weeks but Nevada is expecting to earn millions from the sales of recreational marijuana. The tax rate for recreational weed is 33 to 38 percent, depending on local regulations, with all state and local taxes included.
People who are interested in purchasing and smoking marijuana will only be able to smoke it in private residences. It is important to state that it is not allowed in any public parks, moving vehicles, hotels or casinos. Consuming marijuana in public, like on the Las Vegas strip, can lead to a $600 ticket.
There are currently 44 dispensaries that are licensed to sell recreational marijuana in the state of Nevada. This number is expected to grow over the next few years. 39 of these shops are in the Las Vegas area, however, marijuana still remains federally illegal so there are currently no dispensaries located on the famous Las Vegas strip at this time.
