Despite what I had previously read on this subject I would just like to warn future visitors that Vegas is (unfortunately) NOT a vape friendly city.
This is my third visit in 4 years and things have changed. This is thanks to some people using the vape devices as a way to take drugs. So, if you are like me and proud to have stopped smoking cigarettes and now vape, you may well ruin into trouble in Las Vegas if you plan on doing anything that involves going through security measures. For me, the main problem was the nightclubs, concerts and shows. Many of these run a mandatory confiscation procedure where you are expected to just "throw it away" (as i was told on the entrance to the Chateau Nightclub in the Paris Hotel) or check them in for $5 at the concierge. The first time this happened to me I was completely baffled, as was told they would sell me cigarettes inside! I had no idea why the vapes were banned until getting back to my hotel and researching this. For me, this was a real test of my sobriety with smoking. It's like telling an alcoholic that non alcohol beer is banned from a venue but you can freely purchase normal spirits and beers. It was really worrying. The main problem is that for most things in Vegas, you have already booked, so already have your tickets. None of the places make it clear that vaping is now an issue upon time of booking. T
Sadly I don't feel I can return to the place I loved the most due to this. There was too much inconsistency in the banning of these devices (Axis at Planet Hollywood was fine but the Pearl Theatre at Palms Casino wasn't-for example), so I was quite anxious with everything that was booked and paid for as never knew what I would be walking into.
I totally understand why the ban is in place due to drugs, but it just seems that a blanket ban is the easiest option (for security) rather than actually implicating something additional which supports real users of these life-saving products.Edited: September 11, 2017, 6:25 pm
