The thing that had me most fascinated when I went to Las Vegas, NV, was the long line of people lined up in front of a building.
I would have thought I would be interested in the casinos, which I was and I enjoyed, but most of them were the same once you got inside.
When my husband and I were heading to our hotel, however, I was surprised to see so many people standing outside several small buildings. The buildings looked like what we called smoke shops in our area. My husband told me they were legal marijuana dispensaries. I had experience with medical marijuana, but I had no experience with legal recreational marijuana. I could believe that we could walk into that building and buy anything we wanted. There were at least ten people lined up outside of the marijuana dispensaries, cars with people in the parking lot, and four cars in the drive-thru order pick up. I looked at my husband and laughed. I couldn’t believe they were the only two dispensaries in Las Vegas. My husband assured me they were everywhere, but I noticed these two because they were close to where we were staying. With all the casinos in the area, I wondered how many of those people ever went in. Even though marijuana was legal in Las Vegas, I was sure that these people couldn’t afford to go to the casino after they got out of the dispensary. I finally got to go into the marijuana dispensary and purchased some brownies at the marijuana cafe.
