High Sierra: Public pot smoking proposed for Nevada
Russia Today – Staff – 9 Mar, 2017
A Nevada lawmaker has introduced a bill that would give local governments the power to decide if marijuana could be smoked in public places.
Democratic Las Vegas Senator, Tick Segerblom, introduced the new legislation on Tuesday and if it passes weed enthusiasts could soon be able to legally spark up in public places such as bars, restaurants, hotels and gig venues.
Business owners could apply for a permit that would either be permanent or could be for a few hours, for example if a venue wanted to host a special event, the only exception being that those who smoke the plant must be 21 or over, and it cannot be consumed within 1,000 feet of schools or community facilities such as parks, churches, public pools or substance abuse treatment centers.
