RENO– Ski resorts near Lake Tahoe are asking individuals to leave their cannabis at home as leisure weed will quickly be readily available on both sides of the California-Nevada border.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that even with access to cannabis increasing, ski resorts are maintaining existing policies that limit intoxicated people from taking to the slopes.
California Ski Industry Association representative Michael Reitzell says the accessibility of recreational cannabis is not an invite for people to smoke at ski resorts. He says outside sports are not different from other sport that needs concentration and focus.
Reitzell states involvement in any sport while intoxicated can lead to injury.
