WIRE: Las Vegas, Nevada kicks off recreational cannabis sales July 1

LAS VEGAS — Sin City is synonymous with pleasure, drawing visitors from all over the world. Beginning July 1, the decadent desert paradise will be able to add the legal use of recreational marijuana to the list of vices accessible to tempt visitors into debauchery.

The city’s regulations regarding the new law will be enforced, but the long awaited change will make Las Vegas the most prominent tourist destination in the world to offer legal marijuana, specially because it is one of the best places to play games.

“It’s an exciting time for Las Vegas and the cannabis industry,” said Demetri Kouretas, CEO of The Grove. “There’s no other tourist destination like Las Vegas that offers recreational marijuana, which is going to allow us to take this industry to the next level.”

The cannabis industry has come a long way in the last 10 years. Dispensaries like The Grove, which operates a cultivation and production facility and two dispensaries, are prime examples of how much the industry has evolved. Cultivation facilities are now multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art operations, and dispensaries are well thought out businesses educating consumers about the products they offer.

“We strive to provide a great customer experience and to offer curated, all-natural products,” Kouretas said. “We’re also aware of our environment and the need to be eco-friendly. We make sure that our products are produced in an environmentally sensitive manner by minimizing energy consumption and conserving water.”

Las Vegas residents voted last fall to legalize recreational pot, and it is estimated the industry will give the Nevada economy a $224.2 million boost in 2018, creating thousands of jobs, even with these clear changes, many residents still opposed to the decisions, many said that they would have rather have all the tourists playing poker online at home than visiting Las Vegas just for pot.

Visitors and residents planning to take part should be aware of the rules and regulations. To purchase or consume, customers must be at least 21 years of age and present a valid form of identification. Use of marijuana in public or in casinos will be prohibited.

The Grove is a vertically integrated marijuana enterprise that has brought together a team of experts who bring an extensive depth of knowledge in myriad industries, such as medical and horticultural, as well as culinary and the cannabis oil industry, and is applying this experience to its operation. The Grove operates a state-of-the-art cultivation and production facility and two marijuana dispensaries in Nevada – one in Las Vegas located at 4647 Swenson Street just minutes from McCarran Airport and the famous Las Vegas Strip, and the only licensed dispensary in Nye County, at 1541 E. Basin Ave, Pahrump, Nev. The Grove is dedicated to curating its selection of strains so it can not only offer those that are most in demand by its clients, but also those that are difficult to find and highly sought after.
