Nevada lawmakers toured two San Francisco marijuana consumption lounges to see how the operations are run.

The Las Vegas Sun reports the tour Monday was a one-day, fact-finding trip with San Francisco marijuana officials and business owners to learn best practices for implementing the consumption lounges back home.

Clark County and Las Vegas officials have explored the possibility of such lounges as far back as September 2017, and San Francisco is the only major U.S. city to offer full-scale facilities where the plant can legally be smoked, vaped, dabbed or eaten.

State senator and Clark County Commissioner-elect Tick Segerblom led the seven-member Nevada group, which also featured five members of the Nevada Assembly - Steve Yeager, William McCurdy, Daniele Monroe-Moreno, Chris Brooks and Sarah Peters - as well as North Las Vegas Councilman Isaac Barron.
