If you're the kind of festive fiesta-goer who likes to ring in the New Year holding a blunt, bong, or rig, then you need to start making cannabis-friendly New Year plans.
House Rules and Party Fouls
Many, (if not most) of the parties listed here do not explicitly condone or condemn the use of cannabis, but keep in mind that any indoor venue will frown upon smoking cannabis in the building.
The fire code, in most states, does not allow anything to "combust" during indoor events and performances, but a few fire marshalls have allowed vaporized products to be used on stage (as part of the performance).
And while using a vape pen can be a more discrete way to blaze inside, the easiest work-arounds, are to either; get high before the event (aka "pre-game") or step outside for smoke breaks.

Vegas: One Big New Year's Eve Party
I can summarize a Vegas New Year’s Eve in one word: Cah-razy (crazy-good that is). The Strip becomes one giant block party for you and half a million of your closest buddies. At midnight, the casinos launch a choreographed firework display that makes the Times Square ball drop look antiquated and hokey.
New Year's Eve is one of the biggest nights of the year for Las Vegas nightclubs. Showrooms rock with the hottest entertainment and the nightclubs are packed with celebrities and partygoers who are dressed to impress.
Those wanting to avoid the Strip in their cannabis New Year's plans, should head Downtown, where the Fremont Street Experience will host live bands, drink specials and a midnight countdown on the largest LED video canopy in the world.
