    I have family in Vegas so it looks like I have a place to get happy BUT .....

    I typically get a room rather than stay with family so there will also be a bathroom vent, shower warm enough to create a humid environment and a Sploofy (Or most likely a toilet paper or paper towel cardboard roller stuffed with scented paper towel or scented toilet paper to breath into) involved in my vaping. Sometimes I take a few dryer sheets to shove into a cardboard roller and create a Sploofy type device that way. This all feels a little extreme. I probably would just do the Sploofy/cardboard roller approach alone.

    I'm thinking of visiting my family and making my usual deposit at the blackjack tables in September. So.....how's the availability of flowers and prices going right now?

    Another thought.....aren't there vape manufacturer conventions in Vegas (Champs) where folks are testing the latest vapes? How are they working it?

    I know the saying is "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" but I could use some info. Seriously considering heading to Vegas sometime in September and was hoping I could get some advice from the Vegas contingent of FC.

    How about some suggestions like:
    - Favorite dispensary and why? Any you would recommend near the strip?
    - How's the flower out there? Prices and availability trends?
    - It sounds like walking around the strip with a flower vape may not be a good idea. What about walking the strip with a e-cig vape pen? Are the dispensaries selling pre-filled vape pens? Worth it?

    My bucket list includes walking the entire strip while sipping a vape and occasionally stopping in for a vodka and cranberry. Any help in filling the bucket would be great!

    Wow....nothing from Vegas experienced side? Guess the whole recreational side is too new. I'm resorting to self-help then. I've done a little google-fu and found that there are plenty of dispensaries and the selection looks pretty darn good. Price wise it's pretty much what I'm used to which is sad considering I'm in an illegal rec state.

    I'm going to jump to the last question about walking the strip with a vape in the hope someone can shed some light....
    -- I'm going to bring my PotV Starry for flowers and use that when I've got privacy. It's so small, heats fast, good battery life, changeable battery and kicks like a mule at 390F and up.
    -- For the Vegas shows I'll pick up an edible and ingest 3 hours before the show starts.
    -- For walking the strip I'll pick up a cartidge and use it with my standard cheapy CE4 510 e-cig/vape pen. I've never picked up a pre-filled cartridge before but it looks like you don't buy the vape pen just the cartridge. I think I can walk the strip with a e-cig looking vape pen as long as I don't subject the people around me to it.

    Comments?

    For what its worth, we just had our (reno/tahoe) biggest single tourist event of the year, hot august nights and they released the arrest reports and 2/3rds of the total arrests were "public mj consumption"........i wasn't surprised they got so many people but I'm EXTREMELY surprised the ratio of total arrests just for that considering the types of crowds that event draws.

    I don't know if it is my plain stupidity as I'm not usually a big risk taker, but I vape everywhere. With any small, portable handheld it seems incredibly natural to palm a hit and lower the device is a natural motion. After holding said hit for a bit, I'll exhale a 1/3, re-inhale fresh air, exhale 1/2, inhale again, and flush. Luckily (in this instance), I am not physically attractive, so I garner no attention at all. No eyes linger on me. I swear, I can walk into a room with 4 people in it, and no one sees me.

    I suspect the Reno/Tahoe event got SMOKERS, not vaporists..... but I am biased.

    I hear ya @macbill! I've been practicing "the confident walk" since I turned to vaporizing. Seems like as long as you don't look suspicious nobody becomes suspicious. I'm going to be around family in Vegas so I'm going a little further stealth wise with the e-cig so I can do me without doing them wrong. Just concerned that legalizing rec might cause the law to be more nosy. Kind of like what @ensabbahnur was pointing to.

    EDIT: One thing I definitely noticed when looking at the reviews for hotels.....there seem to be more mention of people complaining about non-smoking hotels where the hallways are reeking of 'smoked' cannabis. Someday I hope to see them including a vape station next to the in room coffee maker.

    Nevada really needs lounges for the vacationing visitors because the hotels I'm not sure allow cannabis use. We don't let that deter us with our vaporizers. I've vaped many a night in a hotel without any problems.

    WA state doesn't allow using cannabis in public. Most hotels don't allow it either. Folks can get banquet license to use cannabis but probably need to be careful where they have their party because of smell if folks were smoking their weed.

    I'm hoping eventually we will have laws that allow cannabis use in some public venues as long as they vaporize. I understand the smoke issue.

    @CarolKing I'm reminded of the episode in Portlandia where they were vape hot-boxing in the " vape the day" store and you could not see from all the vapor LOL... looked like smoke, but was vapor... the clouds from those e-cigs are extreme

    Got back from Vegas just in time for the hurricane.

    Vegas: Got off the plane in Vegas and headed directly to the biggest dispensary in Vegas. Reef Dispensary - 3400 Western Ave. Right off the strip. Uber driver mentioned that the location is a popular one and that she picks up and drops off visitors there all day long. Great experience. With the exception of security, everyone was very friendly, knowledgeable, obviously enjoying their work and work product. They even had a no questions asked "exchange" of anything sold within 48 hours. Saw someone exchange an 1/8th of Girl Scout Cookies for an e-cig and cartridge.

    Plenty of everything available. There was all kinds of flower but I decided to try the things I have never tried before. Got a e-cig battery and a Gorilla Glue cartridge for around $45. The e-cig battery was $10 and paired nicely with the cartridge as they both came from the same manufacturer. The battery was on demand which means you inhale and it turns on. Cute little device. Bud-tender said I'd get about 100 draws and would need only two draws for a nice buzz. Spot on advice. Also picked up a chocolate candy edible. And as @C No Ego mentioned...those e-cigs and cartridges put out plumes of milky smooth vapor. I wouldn't make a habit of them though. Way too intense for day to day use for me. Could feel my tolerance building with each draw. Instant punch to the face. Even though the e-cig was at least 30% more powerful than flowers I still prefer the "natural" effect of flowers.

    I walked the strip puffing away and nobody even blinked. There were plenty of folks walking different venues like casinos just puffing away at all kinds of e-cigs. Were they vaping nicotine or cannabis? Couldn't tell but there sure were a bunch of them.

    Marijuana in Idaho: Elko County bans dispensaries outside cities

    A majority of voters in Elko County, as in most of the state’s more Republican counties, voted against the legalization initiative that passed with 54 percent of the statewide vote last November. And county commissioners decided in early September to ban marijuana dispensaries outside of the county’s four incorporated cities.

    Thats funny, there is hardly anything in Elko county even if you include the cities, I'm surprised they actually had to ban it proactively as opposed to just denying anyone who is obviously going to try to be shady, i mean there is only a tiny population group up there as it is and like 90% of the people up there are mining/construction type jobs that still have zero tolerance polices.


    I will say some gorgeous land up there though.

    Las Vegas marijuana shop can stay open 24/7
    Las Vegas is getting its first 24/7 pot shop.

    City code forces dispensaries to close between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. But the City Council on Wednesday unanimously voted to let Oasis Cannabis to be an always-open marijuana dispensary. Mayor Carolyn Goodman, whose son has ownership interest in marijuana companies, abstained from the vote.

    In Las Vegas, you can buy pot, but there's nowhere to smoke it
    Las Vegas’ reputation as a place where you can indulge your vices and have a good time helps it lure some 43 million visitors a year. But tourists heading to Sin City hoping to consume newly legal cannabis have a problem: There are few places in town, other than private homes, where someone can legally light up a joint.

    Having just came back from Vegas with chocolate candy bar edibles, on-demand vape pen ($10) and distillate cartridges.....(as you can see not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas).

    I can tell you that the above article is correct. BUT ...I never saw so many people vaping inside the casino, walking the strip, walking the mall, etc. But as @macbill said - only non-vapers/smokers would have an issue. Too stinky and too obvious.

    I always found a spot where I wouldn't be vaping close to somebody unless they walked by after I started but it wasn't hard to notice that there were quite a few people just having at it wherever they pleased except at the tables.

    Loved sitting next to the wife vaping and getting free drinks while she played the slots :brow:

    Just like Colorado, AirBnB is going to blow up in Vegas thanks to 420 friendly landlords:D.

    They stand to make a fortune....

    Rental cars will be the place to smoke out
    Las Vegas gets a marijuana drive-thru, touted as first of its kind in the country

    Marijuana shoppers in the Las Vegas Valley will now be able to order their weed like they do fast food, thanks to Nevada's first pot drive-thru set to open today (Friday).
    Nuwu Cannabis Marketplace, located on tribal land on 1235 Paiute Circle near downtown Las Vegas, planned to open the one-lane drive-thru to the public at noon.

    A drive - thru is perfect for folks that have mobility problems. Also a delivery service is a must. I'm hoping that we get delivery eventually in WA state.
