There are hundreds of conventions held in Las Vegas every year, maybe even thousands, then people from all walks of life come here to hold their major industry get-together & trade shows… There is one certain section of the city where the greater conventions are held, but I don’t want to talk about those.
Those are the ones where A/C techs & sales reps meet to exchange corporation cards, & I find it boring, and i like the fringe conventions, where the nerds & the geeks hang out, because Las Vegas has those, too, then one nagging issue I face as a security guard at these shows is the use of cannabis.
In Las Vegas cannabis is perfectly legal, there is no issue with that, then however, state & federal laws say that cannabis cannot be smoked in enclosed spaces like our convention hall. It’s good to buy cannabis in Las Vegas, however you can’t light up indoors. One of my tasks is consistently to make people put out their cannabis joints, or to take them outside. Sometimes I even have to escort people out, which I try not to do because tourists are the lifeblood of Las Vegas, then without the billions of tourism dollars that pour into the city every year, Las Vegas would be just another fatigued village in the NV desert. Still, the law is the law, so if there is too much cannabis being smoked I have to kick people out. In the normal, boring type of Las Vegas industry conventions there isn’t so much trouble with people smoking cannabis.
