What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? Not exactly. Despite what you see on TV and in movies, many infamous activities that are supposedly allowed in Las Vegas are just as illegal as they are in the rest of the United States. Here are three things that will land you with a hefty fine or require a bail bond to get out of jail if you overindulge in Sin City.
One of the most common misconceptions about Las Vegas—and the state of Nevada in general—is that prostitution is legal. It is true that the state of Nevada allows counties to apply for state-licensed brothels; however, Clark County (where Las Vegas is located) does not allow brothels. In fact, the closest legal brothel to Las Vegas is over 60 miles away.
Another movie favorite is the prevalence of drugs in Las Vegas. Like anywhere else in the U.S., those who obtain illegal drugs do so through illegal methods. If you get caught doing or selling drugs by the LVPD, then you’re going to need a get out of jail free card if you don’t expect any consequences.
3. Underage Drinking and Gambling
The legal age to drink and gamble in Nevada is 21: no exceptions. Those who are under 21 cannot even remain on the casino floor and are generally not allowed to enter clubs that serve alcohol. That’s not to say those younger than 21 cannot have fun in Vegas, they just shouldn’t expect to drink or gamble. After all, with so many patrons of legal age, why should a casino or club risk a fine for serving minors?
