Las Vegas offers drive-thrus for alcohol, gambling, weddings, and peep shows, and now the tourist mecca is allowing cannabis stores to offer the service. The Las Vegas City Council voted 6-0 on Wednesday to rescind a citywide restriction on marijuana retail drive-thru operations, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Marijuana business advocates and other industry stakeholders welcomed the move as one that will promote safety and commerce during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the newspaper. But the move comes relatively late, like most other states with legal markets – such as California, Maryland, and Massachusetts – began allowing drive-thru service when the pandemic began last March. Plus, several Nevada jurisdictions already allowed marijuana businesses to offer drive-thru service. Las Vegas marijuana retailers that want to add drive-thru options will have to follow regulations under which all other drive-thru facilities in the city currently operate, regardless of the business, the Review-Journal reported.
