Marijuana Social Use Venues
An ordinance amendment regarding marijuana social use venues has been presented to the City Council of Las Vegas. This bill seeks to establish a business license category and land use regulations for social use venues (marijuana), together with accompanying requirements, and limitations. Current versions of the bill are posted below.
This bill has been out for business impact solicitation which closed on November 6, 2018. It has been before Recommending Committee on January 14, 2019, February 19, 2019 and March 4, 2019. It was heard by City Council on March 20, 2019 and was held in abeyance until the April 17, 2019 City Council meeting.
This proposed amendment strikes language from the original Bill No. 2018-16 which allowed for social use venues to be operated in connection with a beer and wine room alcoholic beverage license. Under this version of the bill, the consumption and/or storage of alcohol on premises is prohibited.
This proposed amendment removes alcohol, adds restrictions regarding the Gaming Enterprise District, and limits the use to current dispensary and retail marijuana store owners only.
This proposed amendment removes alcohol, adds restrictions regarding the Gaming Enterprise District, and limits the use to current dispensary and retail marijuana store owners in the City of Las Vegas only. The amendment has a provision that would expire the section that limits licenses to current dispensary and retail marijuana store owners after one year, unless extended by a future ordinance. This version also removes the bond requirement in section 6.96.040 of previous versions of the bill. This version also eliminates a minimum SUP requirement that called for public access from only one point of entry and exit.
Maps of the gaming enterprise districts and parcels on which nonrestricted gaming is conducted are posted here.
These maps may be used to help identify areas impacted by the SUP restrictions in the Proposed First Amendment 030719 and Proposed First Amendment 040819 versions of the bill.
