I’m not a marijuana user (except that one time in Springfield, MA which we won’t speak about) so I haven’t spent too much time following the legalization of marijuana in Las Vegas very closely. I decided to brush up on using legal marijuana since so many people visiting have questions. Thankfully, I was able to meet up with the CEO of Essence Vegas, Armen Yemenidjian, to learn about buying and using marijuana in Las Vegas.
Armen used to work in the casino industry and is now the CEO of Essence Vegas. The company has three marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas including the only marijuana dispensary on the Vegas Strip. Essence on the Vegas Strip is a two-minute walk from SLS Las Vegas and maybe three minutes from Stratosphere. If you’re in a car heading downtown at night you can’t miss the bright green LED sign that takes up the entire exterior. Nothing says Las Vegas marijuana dispensary like this bright green sign.
