Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas already brings in a massive amount of people into the city. Among those people are a huge group of ravers that like marijuana. Who would’ve thought? An executive with the world’s largest pot dispensary said that the Electric Daisy Carnival has become the greatest weekend in the year for Las Vegas’ legal marijuana industry.
“We are trying to get a feel of the various events that have come through town and lean more heavily toward cannabis vs. other venues and EDC just blew the doors off,” Planet 13 co-CEO Bob Groesbeck said on Nevada Newsmakers.
The co-CEO also said that they expected people to like their products. However, EDC weekend blew their expectations out the water. They were very happy with the results and can’t wait to have the fans back next year. “I have to say, that as a group, they were very well behaved,” he said. “No issues whatsoever. Just a real fun loving crowd.” Another testament to the fact that the dance music community follows PLUR in and out of events. Ravers need to keep this up, as their good behavior does not go unnoticed.
The Las Vegas marijuana industry will definitely be keeping their eye on EDC next year. This boost in sales could even be a step into making marijuana federally legal. You can read more about this story and the marijuana industry in Las Vegas here.
