Clark County issued a stern message to Southern Nevada marijuana businesses: Stop advertising stoned yoga, or we’ll yank your license to sell weed.
In a letter sent Monday, Clark County Business Licensing Director Jacqueline Holloway told cannabis companies to stop advertising events that promote public marijuana consumption — including events held at a person’s home.
“We write to remind you that public consumption of marijuana is unlawful,” the letter reads.
“It is unlawful to advertise and invite the public to consume marijuana at parties, dining events, recreational events such as yoga and swimming, and other types of events, even if events are held in a private residence.”
Holloway also noted that any pot business found to be sponsoring or even affiliated with an event or business promoting public consumption “risks the suspension or revocation of their business license.”
County spokesman Erik Pappa said some of businesses were recently listed as sponsors for events that paired yoga and karate with marijuana consumption.
Consumption of recreational marijuana becomes legal Saturday, July 1. Here’s where you can legally consume it. For more information, please visit ClarkCountyNV.gov.
