    I asked this before, but I forgot the answer

    I cant use Photobucket for uploading photos, so when it comes to building my trip report, where can I upload photos too ?
    cheers

    Word is that the SLS is rebranding ............... possibly back to the Sahara, although I haven't checked.


    The smell of cannabis is overpowering, not only on the strip, but I even smelt it in the restrooms at the North Outlets. The strip and Downtown seem to be a lot tackier this year.

    same here, can't say i noticed it all - in fact the only time was once when walking past a hotel room!

    and I don't smoke, so it's not like I'm used to it

    all True what Luci says....
    Smell of weed is vast all over, sometimes the smell hits you in the hotel walkways (room level)..
    Smell on the strip is ripe, and yes, in both north/south outlets, you get waft's......

    Dont smell strong enough to get a free high though !
    It does de-value the location though, as i had the distant thoughts of walking through crack alley (ok, an overstatement)...

    I saw a few guys smoking joints on the strip, oh well, must be the norm now maybe?

    But what is your reaction if you saw someone slugging a drink on the strip, or the constant lolling about drunk everywhere you turn.

    Not having a pop at you mate at all, but you do realize that alcoholism is a bigger cost in lives ruined than cigarettes or pot, but we seem to accept it as "the norm".

    The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.

    I don't think it devalues the location. That honour goes to the ones who tout themselves for photos wearing nothing but duct tape over their norks and private bits (and that's just some of the men)
    Admittedly, I don't like the smell of the herbal tobacco, or ordinary ciggies, but it can't be any worse than people staggering up and down those giant plastic glasses filled full of margarita.
    I think the place can do without both tbh. But, it's just how it is now.

    as i said, overstatement... (my own choice of wording as such)

    good point about the alcohol, as you said, i guess it becomes the norm (hence me saying weed becomes the norm)


    On that note, we used to see lots of peeps with those big plastic bottles walking up and down the strip, along with lots of guys with big beer cans...
    Strangely, didnt see many of that this time, we hit up some walks on the strip at least 9 days of our trip.


    Personally, it doesnt bother me any of it.
    As for the Duct tape, that blows away my idea of making some money if i lose it all again when i go back in 4 months !

    There was a noticeable smell on the strip when I was there in October 2017 but nothing that really bothered me.
    One of our groups rooms was on a different floor to the others and there was a really strong smell in that corridor, so much so that they waived the resort fee on checkout
