Clark County Commission unanimously approves drive-thru marijuana dispensaries

September 17, 2020

Drive-thru marijuana dispensaries are soon to be sprouting up in Las Vegas. As of September 3, 2020, dispensaries located in unincorporated Clark County are legally able to operate drive-thrus. This development comes after the County Commissioners unanimously voted to approve the ordinance which applies to both retail and medical marijuana businesses.

Prior to this zoning implementation, the only local dispensaries that had drive thrus were NuWu Cannabis Marketplace, which is on tribal land, and more recently, THRIVE Cannabis Marketplace in North Las Vegas, following the cities' removal of a provision prohibiting drive through and walk ups in June of 2020.

Businesses that want to add a drive-thru are first required to obtain approval from both the county and state. In addition to the other county regulations for cannabis business, those interested must submit plans that include a certified review from a licensed land surveyor.
