Las Vegas to host the world's largest marijuana dispensary
This should be fun: As early as tomorrow, a new dispensary called Planet 13 is set to open in Las Vegas, and it’s aiming to be the biggest dispensary in the world. Actually, the website calls it a “Cannabis Superstore and Entertainment Complex,” so there’s more here than just some flower in different jars. Esquire says that the complex hosts 40,000 square feet of space showing off recreational and medicinal product, with giant LED flowers outside, a LED-lit water fountain, an LED walkway with 3D visuals on the ceiling, and a giant interactive wall display. Inside, there are 47 widescreen TVs set up (hopefully all playing Blue Planet — that show’s great to watch while stoned!), and two different counters with items for sale.
The whole shebang opens up November 1st, a short drive off of the strip in Vegas (very short, actually — it’s right behind the Fashion Show mall. Sounds like a blast to us! Maybe a road trip is in order to head up and see the festivities.
Planet 13’s investors’ website lists a whole lot of board members and directors, so this seems like a big to-do if nothing else. Attractions in Vegas come and go as quickly as quarters in the slot machine, but if there’s going to be a biggest dispensary in the world, it might as well be there, right? We wish them luck, and hopefully we’ll get a chance to stop and see the setup before too long.
