The week in weed: the country’s largest dispensary and more

Another week, another set of local cannabis developments. The biggest—literally—includes plans recently announced for the nearly 16,000 square-foot Nuwu Cannabis Marketplace, whose Las Vegas Paiute tribe owners say would be the largest in the U.S. The recreational-oriented facility will be located at 1225 N. Main St.

Meanwhile, Henderson will have to wait at least another month before its five dispensaries can sell recreational marijuana, as the Henderson City Council continues to finesse regulations—which could allow for 24-hour operations (currently only allowed in North Las Vegas).

And finally, the Clark County Commission is deliberating on an ordinance that would ban cannabis advertising at McCarran International Airport, which, in its current wording, would extend to taxis and other vehicles on the airports’ roads and property. The Commission, noting the ambiguity, will revisit and possibly clarify the act next month.
