When medical marijuana first became legal in Las Vegas and Greater Nevada, our marijuana dispensary wasn’t only one of the first to open its doors—it was also one of the first to make marijuana delivery available to eligible patients and customers. Now, with recreational marijuana sales in full swing across the state, marijuana delivery is one of the simplest and most convenient ways to buy your green.
Unfortunately, that's not the only message this raid sent. Thanks to decades of demonization, much of it fueled by alcohol and tobacco interests, marijuana still carries a stigma. Police actions like this only reinforce that stigma. That people who get their medicine from dispensaries instead of pharmacists are druggies, and the employees of such establishments can still get their mugs displayed like drug dealers.
