World’s largest recreational pot dispensary opens in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
There is a huge recreational cannabis dispensary a short drive away from the Strip and the people who run it, claim that it is the largest dispensary in the world.
Planet 13 located near Desert Inn Road and Sammy Davis Jr. Dr. is not hard to spot. Just look for the giant red planet fountain outside.
On Thursday state leaders came together for a ribbon cutting signifying the grand opening of the store. Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong made an appearance with Shango, a local partner dispensary.
The owners of Planet 13 started with a medical cannabis company called Medizin.
Now, they’ve developed a 40,000 sq ft space filled with delicacies for the cannabis consumer’s delight and overwhelming aesthetics. Marketing Director Davis Farris tells News 3 the goal is to have an interactive entertainment experience.
Guests are greeted with a giant fountain complete with giant LED flower lights shooting from the roof. They will step on an interactive LED portion of the floor before crossing over to the dispensary floor where they are met with a “budtender” to help pick their selections. Throughout the day a 5min floating orb show takes place just below the ceiling of the floor, adding another entertainment element. The shop has 42 cash registers to handle the rush.
It’s practically a Vegas nightclub in a cannabis dispensary form.
While 40,000 sq.ft. is developed there is a lot more space available on the property.
While the owners have yet to confirm expansion plans, speculation of a coffee shop, cafe, and additional entertainment areas are looming.
