Drinking
Alcohol is served 24 hours a day in Vegas, you must be 21+ with valid id/passport. It is completely legal to have an open container of alcohol on the strip as long as it’s not in a glass container (restrictions on glass containers apply to non-alcoholic beverages as well). Public intoxication is legal with exceptions for intoxication involved in civil or criminal offenses like a DUI.

Cannabis/Weed
Anyone who is 21 and over can purchase cannabis in Vegas for recreational purposes. Just bring a valid government-issued driver’s license, ID or passport. It can’t be expired and must be scannable to confirm it’s the real deal. Do not smoke in any public places like on the Strip, in restaurants, or even in private hotel rooms. Recreational sales allow up to an ounce of marijuana or ⅛ of an ounce for concentrates like shatter, wax, crumble, and oils. Medical patients can buy up to 2.5 ounces of product within a 14-day period. It’s against federal law to carry cannabis across state lines — even to another state where cannabis is legal. So if you’re on a road trip between Nevada and California, it’s illegal to cross the border with cannabis, even though recreational use is allowed in both states. If you show up to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, you can unload any leftover weed in “last chance” disposal boxes no questions asked. Carrying cannabis beyond the TSA checkpoint is federally illegal, even if you’re flying inside the boundaries of Nevada between Vegas and Reno.
