The McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas has installed garbage cans for marijuana, which is legally sold in Las Vegas, including a dispensary on the strip, before passengers depart the city, rather than hastily smoking it before their flight. They currently have 13 of these trash cans in both terminals, which are emptied multiple times a week.
Per Fox News,
The green receptacles — of which there are 13 so far — have been bolted to the ground in “high-traffic” areas outside the airport and its car rental area, The Las Vegas Sun is reporting. The Department of Aviation moved to install the bins, or amnesty boxes, after Clark County instituted a ban on marijuana possession and advertising at McCarran back in September.
In 2017, tourists who neglected to dispose of their leftover marijuana before arriving at McCarran would have to deal with the Las Vegas Metro Police, who would ultimately determine if the tourist was carrying a felony amount. However, Officer Aden Ocampo-Gomez of the Las Vegas police force said no citations have been issued stemming from the airport’s new ordinances on marijuana possession and advertising, passed in September.
