Weed and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Cannabis Economy Comes to Sin City
Legal marijuana is one of the country’s fastest growing industries and after a few years since legalization, Vegas has created a marijuana monument that no other jurisdiction has ever imagined—not Silicon Valley, Bangkok, or Barcelona. Not even Amsterdam.
Sin City is already home to the world’s largest weed stores. It’s also the only place on the planet where people can pick up cannabis at a drive-thru, as if picking up fast food. A one-of-a-kind marijuana museum and a weed-entertainment mega-center are further evidence that Vegas is just getting started as the Cannabis Capital of the World.
Weed and Loathing in Las Vegas is a fun, colorful, and fast read that explores Sin City’s goal of becoming “Amsterdam on steroids.” It’s also brutally honest as it spotlights the shady politics, regulatory corruption, casino clout, anointed players, and moneybags behind the new billion-dollar business. Weed and Loathing blows away the pot smoke that has, until now, concealed and distorted the cannabis culture of Las Vegas. 217 Pages
