On November 1st, Planet 13 opened in Las Vegas and now holds the title of "World's Largest Dispensary." (well, not really, they just call themselves that, but let's not nitpick)
Located near the Trump International, you can find Planet 13 at 2548 W Desert Inn Road.
What began with 16,000 usable square feet of retail space, has now blossomed into 40,000 square feet and includes several interactive installations for visitors. These installations include a 3-D projection room, a motion activated floor that lights up when you walk across it, and my personal favorite, the ability to write on the walls with a laser.
Developed by Larry Scheffler, a former councilman and his partner, Bob Groesbeck, a former Nevada mayor, Planet 13 is projected to cost a minimum of $7.5 million dollars and will be built in several phases. This complex will eventually be over 112,000 square feet of retail space in total and will include a coffee shop and a brewery on top of the already enormous dispensary.
As soon as you enter the front door of the dispensary you must go through the usual security checks. These include a metal detector or wand and search of any bags. The next step is to verify you are over 21 by showing your state issued drivers license or another acceptable form of identification.
Once you are through security, you will encounter the first installation which is a special floor (10x16) that lights up as patients walk across it, a feature which is sure to demand the attention of even the most veteran of stoners!!
To your left will be the dispensary room, which only has 3 walls, but still requires you to go through another security check (they have actual turnstiles, you must scan your admission ticket to enter).
As soon as you enter the dispensary room, you will be greeted by a friendly employee who is more than willing to take the time to show you around and help you figure out exactly what type of products will suit you best.
Keep in mind, there are limits to how much you can buy in the adult use market. If you are over 21, you may possess up to one ounce of dried cannabis flower, and up to 1/8th of an ounce of concentrated cannabis.
