LAS VEGAS, June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Locals and tourists alike will have the opportunity to be first in line to celebrate legal recreational marijuana in the state of Nevada on the evening of June 30, 2017, with sales beginning at midnight July 1 at Reef Dispensaries' flagship Las Vegas Strip location. With lines expected to wrap around the 165,000 square-foot facility, Reef will be handing out limited edition, dated 'Day 1' snapback hats to the first 100 recreational customers in line on the night of June 30. The event will include a rooftop firework show at the stroke of midnight on July 1, plus live DJs, food trucks, and event sponsor booths from local cannabis vendors Cannabiotix, Las Vegas Cannabis, Evergreen Organix, Dixie, CannaPunch, Redwood and CWN/incrEdibles on both days.
Nevada Senator Tick Segerblom will be the first to legally purchase recreational cannabis at 12 a.m. on Friday night at Reef Dispensaries. As a longtime champion of cannabis legalization, Tick's integral contribution to the movement has been unparalleled. Reef is proud to honor the senator as its first recreational marijuana customer in the state.
"This day is the culmination of two years of hard work by an army of Nevadans. I'm very proud to be a part of it," said Senator Segerblom. "It's going to be a historical day in the history of Las Vegas."
"We are extremely excited to be ushering in the launch of recreational cannabis in Nevada in style," says Reef Dispensaries / Tryke Companies CEO Matt Morgan. "As a company, we hope to lead by example so that other markets can follow, laying the groundwork for eventual nationwide legalization."
Despite some logistical confusion created last week by a court ruling in Carson City, it will not affect Reef Dispensaries' right to legally sell recreational cannabis in Nevada on July 1.
Reef invites all to join in making history on the night of June 30/July 1 to help ring in this monumental event for the state of Nevada and the city of Las Vegas. On-site and available for brief interviews will be Reef Dispensaries / Tryke Companies CEO Matt Morgan. To schedule an interview with Mr. Morgan, please RSVP to [email protected] by June 29. Reservations are limited.
