March mailbag: cannabis lounges; BLM’s war against mustangs; and a welcome back to Sheila Leslie
I just wanted to remind your readers that Nevada, like Colorado, has an indoor-smoking law (NRS 202.2483) that prohibits smoking inside most restaurants and places of employment. That includes marijuana. Although cannabis consumption lounges (RN&R, March 2023) were authorized in 2021, the Nevada Legislature did not create an exception in the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act (NCIAA) for smoking marijuana. Any statute or regulation inconsistent with the NCIAA is actually null and void. It would be wise for local governments to oppose such establishments until the NCIAA is properly amended.
