Marijuana possession, advertisement ban implemented at McCarran Intl. Airport

Sep 6, 2017 10:49 AM

A ban of both the possession and advertisement of marijuana at Southern Nevada’s McCarran International Airport, among the top ten busiest airports domestically, has been implemented by Clark County Commissioners, the government body overseeing the facility.

The decision was made to keep the airport’s rules consistent with federal regulations, the commissioners said. Recreational marijuana use and sales became legal in Nevada July 1st.

The body voted Tuesday to prohibit both activities and extended the sanction to all airport-owned property throughout the county, including parcels leased to private businesses.

The advertisement embargo does not include vinyl-wrapped vehicles, such as taxis or personal cars picking up or dropping off airport passengers.
