    Apothecary Shoppe and Reef are probably the closest that have gotten reports about them on VMB. Apothecary is on the other side of I15. Reef is closer to the Strip, but a bit more north.

    Reef is small but friendly and has what most people need.

    Assuming you don’t have a car: If you are willing to take the Gold Coast shuttle from the High Roller I recommend Apothecary Shoppe across from Palms. If you are more Strip oriented take a bus or Monorail to SLS, Releaf and Reef are across the street. Most shops have websites and menus with prices.

    There's even a drive-thru and it's the largest one, just north of Downtown. I know it's not near the middle of the strip but it might be worth a try,

    SH0CK posted a map of them all in Post #2 in this thread, but to answer the question, I believe that would be Reef Dispensaries.

    We didn’t hit one up on the trip. Drive by one on our way to dinner inn saturday night, but that’s the only one we saw. I figured there would be more around. Nothing really on the strip at all.

    It's not going to be super convenient for tourists to buy pot for the foreseeable future. The casinos want it that way because 1) It's illegal to smoke in their hotel rooms and 2) They want you downstairs spending money, not sitting in your room burning the hippie lettuce. You're going to have to devote some time and effort to it for now. As it stands, I'm making it one of my first priorities when I get to town, so I have it out of the way for the rest of my vacation. I'm an aging hippie, so YMMV. :D

    I went from The Mirage shared Lyft drop off at TI and to The Reef and back within a half hour. It was a Sunday evening.

    They were knowledgeable and helpful. Bought the Vape Pen with battery for $42 and it lasted the entire 4 days. You can pretty much smoke it wherever you go because there is little smell (I recognize the smell because I know what it is) and most people figure it's an e-cigarette. I sat right out the taxis pick up at The Mirage and used it and at the pre-game outside a Knights game with nobody the wiser. It was perfect for Fremont St.

    Note the Reef has(d) no wifi and being a Canadian I had no plan so I could not call a Lyft/Uber and just waited for a cab to show up.

    You can avoid this issue by making the dispensary a stop on a round trip when you order the car in the first place (assuming you used the Mirage lobby wifi or similar?)

    Did you know that Rogers / Bell / Telus all have ter $5 a day All in USA plan?

    Back on topic we say +1 to Reef.

    Last trip the cabbie suggested Pisos. Flamingo & Maryland Pkwy. Don't recommend it as it seemed more expensive than Reef, as well as I am pretty sure they are running a kick-back scheme to the cabbies, similar to the strip clubs. Cabbie said no they weren't but I am pretty sure he was paid by me and the shop.

    I'm on a corporate plan where I can only buy pre-paid packages which are crazy over priced for texts and calls. The data makes it even worse. I can't get around it.

    I did not know about the round trip. I googled it and it seems you request two stops. Where you are going and and where you originated from. I wonder if there was a line up at The Reef how they would feel about waiting?? I would hate to be "that guy" but I guess if you tipped they would be okay,

    You'll be charged a flat rate per X amount of time the car waits. Lyft website probably mentions it - I can't recall the amount off top of my head.

    Enter your destination. Add stop. If your destination is also your origin, it's a round trip....This is also how you can stop at a dispensary en route to a hotel from the airport, by adding a stop...

    That sucks about your phone package....

    So when we've gone in the past to Reef, on a couple of occasions cabs have been waiting outside. One another occasion we went in the morning. The store was quiet, no cabs waiting outside. When we came out, our cabbie was still there. Didn't charge us while he waited. He said " I figured you would have to get back to the hotel, and Im not doing anything else"

    Cab driver I had on Thur had a sign on the back of the passenger head rest that said just ask and I will stop at a marijuana dispensary or liquor store.

    Last trip my wife was bugging me to go to a dispensary.
    I didn't feel like taking the time to get an Uber or cab and leaving the casino.
    She found one on Yelp that delivered the edibles to the hotel within an hour.
    Met them out front by valet drop off.
    They actually had a two for one special.
    Service and product were very good.
