January 2018: Recreational Marijuana in Las Vegas

Share This Article

When and where can you legally light up? While perhaps not the most pressing question on everyone’s mind, both medical and recreational marijuana is becoming a huge growth industry in Nevada and a major source of tax revenue. It is a pressing question on the minds of many tourists.

John Laub, President of the Las Vegas Medical Marijuana Association, the trade industry that represents the Nevada medical and recreational cannabis industry, will give Lambda members (and guests) an overview of how marijuana taxes are affecting local governments. He’ll also discuss proposed smoking lounges and clubs, which would make Nevada the first place in the nation to allow public use.

The Las Vegas Medical Marijuana Association is a chamber of commerce organized to promote the marijuana industry in Nevada. The association keeps their members up-to-date on the latest products and retail innovations. Laub is a lifelong Nevadan and is also the co-founder of the Nevada Biotechnology and Health Science Consortium. He is currently the chairman of the UNLV College of Sciences Advisory Board.

Lambda has also announced that the annual meeting will be held immediately following the January lunch event. While all Lambda members are encouraged to attend and participate, members are also asked to submit their proxies (to ensure a quorum) by visiting http://bit.ly/LambdaProxy
