Jamey and John discuss some of their favorite Las Vegas movies and some of the hard data behind the marijuana business in Las Vegas.

Well…weed is here to stay…or so says Rolling Stone Magazine in a recent article.  Much to my chagrin, I have to agree.  Although our feckless leaders on the Hill continue the fight the good fight against the now mighty Cannabis Flower.  This week The Pod Bay Door crew discusses the coming wave of legal battles with the Fed and the possibility of the first Pot Lounges in both Colorado and Las Vegas.  We also discuss dogma,tone and fervor with which the pot arguments are laid and the subsequent poor and misrepresentation it has within the “For Pot Community”, most especially the stigma and ensuing embarrassment shown by those who strongly favor the drug.

Although not a marketed or published fact, the influence of the Asian tourism section (including High End Gambling) has decreased and is becoming a secondary factor as gaming takes a back seat to F&B and Non-Gaming Entertainment.  These decreases can be seen with the comparison of the following Forbes article of 2015.
