Officials were proud to announce Monday’s soft-opening of the “Largest marijuana store on the planet” in downtown Las Vegas.
The dispensary is on tribal lands, off of Main Street and Washington Avenue.
Many people didn’t realize the tribe owned land in the area.
The 31-acre plot is small, but there’s nothing small about the built-from-scratch NuWu Cannabis Marketplace on Paiute Circle.
“NuWu actually means ‘the people,'” explained Chris Spotted Eagle, the vice-chairman of the tribe.
The tribe’s chairman, Benny Tso, laughed while explaining some of the recent changes made in drug-testing policies on the reservation.
“I actually bought the first product out of our store,” Tso said. “I bought some Willie’s Reserve and Skywalker OG.”
