Over 40,000 sf ft of fun!

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.

MA Banks Partner With Retail Pot Businesses

(Story Developing....)

In a story first reported by Boston Business Journal, BayCoast bank became the first bank to announce a partnership with a retail marijuana business in the State of Massachusetts.

Until this point, banks have been willing to work with dispensaries on the medical side of the business, but for the most part have avoided getting involved in retail partnerships. However, there are several adult use shops that claim to have banks accepting their deposits, they are just unwilling to disclose the names of these institutions for obvious reasons.

Cuomo's Aide: "Green New Deal" On the Way

Plan for adult use market set to be announced

According to a report by the New York Post, Governor Andrew Cuomo is set to announce the details of his plan to create a recreational marijuana market in the State of New York during next Month's Executive Budget Address.

Last spring, Cuomo announced that he was going to begin looking into the possibilities of creating an adult use cannabis market in New York, including all the potential negative and positive consequences that could arise as a result. This was a drastic reversal from his opinion that marijuana is a dangerous "gateway drug", only a few years ago.

Utah At War Over Weed

Mormon Church Intervenes

While the people of Utah have spoken (when they voted to legalize medical marijuana last month), apparently the government is not listening.

In a stunning reversal of the will of the people, Utah has scrapped the bill passed by voters and replaced it with a gutted, muted down version of the original proposal.

Prop 2, the ballot initiative designed to create a medical marijuana market in Utah, was initially passed during the November election. However, immediately following the vote, it became clear a legal battle was on the way. With the mormon church making it clear they had serious grievances with some aspects of the proposal, legislators on both sides of government conveyed similar concerns.
