Pot Museum: As If Las Vegas Isn’t Self-Destructive Enough

Gambling, booze, buffets. Sin City’s aim, in addition to relieving you of all your money, seems to be to help shorten your life. No sleep for hours in smoke-choked casinos, unlimited booze and stuffing your gut at lard-loaded buffets. All guaranteed to kill you before surviving those three score years and ten.

Now, Sin City visitors who wish to spend a smoky shortened life, can go downtown to Fremont Street and visit Cannabition. Marijuana has been legal in Nevada since 2017, so museum visitors can indulge in all kinds of cannabis history, products and paraphernalia. For museum schedules, fees and other info, go to cannabition.com

Before you hit the road or sky, get a flu vaccine shot. With store and airport holiday crowds jammed together, your chances of mixing with sick people are highest of the year. Also take supplies of antibiotic medicines with you, as well as a kit with tissues, soap and other disposable heath products.

To avoid contamination, try to stay away from obviously ill coughers and sneezers. And always wash your hands before and after meals, as well as when using public restrooms. If you’re susceptible to catching colds or flu when in crowded travel situations, it’s a good idea to wear disposable medical face masks.

Flying Nuns Accused Of Sinning $500,000 Into Sin City PDF Print E-mail

Two senior California nuns are in trouble for absconding with church money in large amounts over ten years of flights to Las Vegas. And the flashy town didn’t earn its evil nickname by holding religious services in its gaudy casinos. Hey, brother, is that a sister sitting at the next slot machine?

Obviously the nuns didn’t wear their habits at the casinos, but did have the bad habit of stealing and betting church money in Sin City. Charges are not yet reported, but you can bet there will be some fervent pleas offered heavenward.
