Hemp and Hype: A Look Inside the Cannabition Pot Museum in Las Vegas

It’s hard to get things to stick at the Neonopolis. The open-air retail and entertainment plaza has seen plenty of attractions come and go over the years in Las Vegas, including at least one nightclub, a 14-screen movie theater and a drag queen bowling alley. Funny, since the location couldn’t be more perfect—on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and the Fremont Street Experience, a five-block pedestrian mall that serves as the tourist hub of Downtown.

(Robert Kachelriess for Leafly)

Even its cheap underground parking garage doesn’t get the traffic it should. But while it never appears to be fully leased out, the Neonopolis has its share of success stories, like local beermakers Banger Brewing, a Denny’s that comes with its own wedding chapel, and a vintage toy shop familiar to regular viewers of Pawn Stars.

Heading to Vegas? Search dispensaries around town.

However, a new tenant hopes to fully inhale the untapped potential of the Neonopolis. Cannabition bills itself as a first-of-its-kind art museum based on the journey of cannabis “from seed to celebration.”

“We’re stepping into new territory,”

Dispensary Thieves in Colorado Steal Display Jars of Oregano Instead of Flower

A group of would-be thieves recently tried to snatch a stash of weed from a dispensary in Colorado Springs, Colorado. And while they succeeded in breaking into the shop and stealing a bunch of merchandise, they didn’t actually end up with what they were looking for. Instead of getting away with jars full of bud, the thieves ended up stuck with jars full of oregano.

Smash-and-Grab Robbery at Colorado Dispensary

The Native Roots Dispensary in Colorado Springs was recently broken into in what local news sources are calling a “smash-and-grab” operation. The incident reportedly took place around 1 a.m.

According to witnesses, a group of teenagers drove a stolen van directly into the dispensary. The van smashed a hole into the building, and the people driving the van entered the shop.

From there, they reportedly stole jars of “herb” from the display windows. They also took t-shirts.

From the looks of it, the group was trying to get their hands on a nice stash of cannabis. But the owner of the dispensary told authorities that the thieves never actually entered
