McCarran International Airport Takes A Stand Against Recreational Marijuana in Las Vegas

McCarran International Airport Takes A Stand Against Recreational Marijuana in Las Vegas
Meg Butler

Clark County commissioners voted Tuesday to ban both the possession and advertisement of marijuana at McCarran International Airport.

Marijuana was legalized in the state of Nevada on on Jan. 1, 2018. However, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration classifies marijuana as an illegal Schedule 1 controlled substance and the decision was made to keep the airport’s rules consistent with federal regulations, according to commissioners.

The ban extends to all airport-owned property throughout the county, including parcels leased to private businesses.  The ban will not apply to taxis and personal vehicles vinyl-wrapped with advertising.
