Gambling While Stoned Is Now Illegal in Las Vegas

Sin City

It may be known as Sin City, but there are some rules in Las Vegas. Nevada has announced measures to ban anyone stoned on cannabis from using roulette wheels, card tables, or one-armed bandits.

No Stoned Gambling

The gambling regulating body of Las Vegas, The Nevada Gaming Commission, updated its gambling-while-intoxicated laws to include cannabis.The ban prohibits anyone visibly intoxicated from gambling.

How To Spot A Stoner

As for how a stoned gambler will be spotted, well, this seems to be open to interpretation. For the time being there are no simple, accurate ways of verifying whether someone is high on weed or not.

Apparently, the staff is going to receive special training that will help them spot a stoner amoung the casino clientele. It’s all a bit ‘Reefer Madness’.

Broad Term

The term intoxicated is also a somewhat broad term that is subject to interpretation. It will certainly be interesting to see how these new regulations pan out going forward. They may even inform regulation and rules in another part of the country.
