LAS VEGAS (KTNV/KGTV) - It's the first Black Friday since recreational pot was legalized in Nevada.
That means local dispensaries are rolling out special deals.
Some dispensaries, including Reef Dispensaries and Inyo Fine Cannabis Dispensary, are giving away free with purchases.
Others are offering doorbuster deals, such as The+Source's inclusion of a joint with a $20 minimum purchase for the first 250 customers. Other dispensaries are offering deals including 50 percent off bongs or buy two edibles get one half off.
It's a sign of the times in Nevada, and a similar scene that could unfold in California come next year, following the passage of Proposition 64.
In California, sales of recreational marijuana are set to go into effect with some new rules on Jan. 1, 2018.
The state recently revealed its long-awaited regulations to govern the pot industry in California. Notable regulations include:
- Cannabis shops must have security surveillance 24 hours a day and may operate between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.;
- Proposed premises must not be within a 600-foot radius of a school, daycare center, or youth center;
- Delivery vehicles may not contain more than $3,000 of cannabis product at any time and deliveries must be made in person by a licensed employee,
- Police may enlist individuals under the age of 21 to attempt purchases of cannabis to ensure licensees and employees do not sell to minors; and
- Products that need to be chilled below 41 degrees cannot be sold, except for some juices.
