Dispensaries in Nevada are preparing to open for recreational sales on July 1, a move hailed as a “game-changer” for the state, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

“Everything we know shows that millennials are very pro-marijuana, and that’s the new marketing push,” Nevada state Sen. Tick Segerblom told the Sun. “This is a game-changer for Las Vegas and tourism here as far as I’m concerned.”

“Amsterdam on steroids,” he added.

Thirty-seven Las Vegas Valley applicants received an early start license to begin recreational sales Saturday, and one owner is expecting his clientele to increase “by two to three times” overnight.

“It’s a historic moment, and I think the growth will be both immediate and gradual,” said Armen Yemenidjian, owner of Essence Medical Dispensary. “We’re ready to go and very excited.”

Many store owners are loading up on inventory in anticipation of big sales.

“It took eight to 10 months for supply to catch up and the market to level out,” said Neil Demers of Diego Pellicer dispensary in Denver where marijuana prices skyrocketed after vendors failed to keep up with consumer demand in 2014.
