Marijuana Vegas Vacation
You might have heard that it’s now legal to buy marijuana in Las Vegas. Many tourists may enjoy marijuana but the laws seem to have been tailored for residents of Nevada. Smoking marijuana is allowed in a residence. Smoking marijuana is not allowed in casinos or in public.
Despite the smell in nearly every hotel and parking garage marijuana is not legal to use in a casino. Smokers in Las Vegas should enjoy marijuana in the safety of their own, or a friend’s, residence. A residence includes porches and backyards so you might smell marijuana just walking around Las Vegas.

I’m not a pot smoker so a lot of the jargon goes over my head. This US News and World Report article has plenty a good Q & A on the topic if you’d like to learn more.
Finding A Place To Stay In Las Vegas Where You Can Legally Smoke Marijuana
What I want to look into is how you can legally smoke marijuana as a tourist in Las Vegas. The easiest way to smoke marijuana legally in Las Vegas is to own a house. The option of having a second place to live in Las Vegas isn’t an option for most people. Being a resident of a condo might not be enough. Buildings might have their own rules that prohibit smoking of any kind. It’s safest to have a free standing house.
The next easiest way to find a marijuana apartment or house is also a great way to save money on hotel rooms when visiting Las Vegas. Airbnb is similar to Uber ride-hailing or Lyft in utility. The website and app connect people looking for a place to stay with people who would like to rent their place. Officially, Airbnb is an online marketplace that allows people to rent short-term vacation rentals, apartment rentals, homestays, hostel beds, or hotel rooms.

Most of the residencies are houses or rooms in houses off the Vegas Strip. Airbnb is a good option if you’re fed up with paying resort fees, parking fees, etc. However, you will find some condos for rent in casinos (MGM Signature (no resort fee) and Palms Place) that may be less expensive than the actual casino charges. Hosts may or may not charge a resort fee for casino rentals.
Back to legal marijuana in Las Vegas.
According to this report by KTNV the state estimates that nearly 70% of tourists will look to buy legal marijuana. Some people will purchase marijuana edibles that aren’t as easy to detect as smoking. Airbnb is probably the best bet to find a room or house that is legal for guests to smoke marijuana. Here’s an example of an Airbnb in Las Vegas that’s “420 friendly.”
Not all apartments on Airbnb allow smoking. You can easily set a filter to show only rooms and houses that are smoking friendly. This is only half the challenge. Airbnb doesn’t have a “marijuana friendly” setting so you should check with the host to make sure they’re okay if you smoke marijuana in their residence.
