Nevada’s first cannabis tasting room is opening this weekend, giving the venue a head start on a sector that won’t be widely available for two years.

The Las Vegas Pauite Tribe will open the establishment Saturday at the NuWu Cannabis Marketplace, which is located on tribal land about two blocks from downtown Las Vegas.

In June, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, signed a bill that prohibits local governments from licensing marijuana social consumption businesses until 2021.

However, NuWu is on a site regulated by the Las Vegas Pauite Tribe, not the state government.
