When Snoop Dog dies and goes to weed heaven, I'm pretty sure it will look something like Planet 13.
The 112,000-square-foot cannabis dispensary is the largest in the world and is open 24/7 - 365 days a year.
Take a look inside the absolutely mahoosive Las Vegas dispensary below:
Adults 21 years and older can legally consume cannabis in Nevada and Planet 13 attempts to provide a customer's every need.
The first thing you'll notice when entering the Las Vegas superstore - which is practically an entertainment complex by the way - are giant 15-foot-tall LED interactive lotus flowers on the roof of the building.
Also in-store are massive digital displays where customers can click and collect their weed.
There's also an interactive customer-facing production area where people can casually watch robots produce their products, which are also available online and via delivery.
The actual products range from CBD, cannabis concentrates, cannabis vapes to premium flower and cannabis edibles.
Perhaps what's more impressive than the size of the store is what they actually do with all that space.
The Vegas Planet 13 also offer an 'out-of-the-world' dining experience at Trece Eatery + Spirit.
Not only that, if you truly want to get into the spirit of Las Vegas, the world’s largest dispensary also provides cannabis-themed weddings - because, why not?
"Growing cannabis is an art form, and we treat it as such," Co-founder Bob Groesbeck told UNILAD.
"All of Medizin plant genetics are hand-selected, and we pay careful attention to the strain cultivation process to ensure that all Medizin cannabis products are the best in class."
There are currently two Planet 13 Superstores, one in Las Vegas and another Planet 13 in Orange County, California, along with a smaller location in Medizin, Las Vegas.
It all began when co-founders Bob and Larry took a big gamble in 2014 by investing $7 million of their own money into the business.
It's safe to say they haven't looked back since.
"My fellow Co-CEO, Larry Scheffler, and I have always imagined that Planet 13 would become the World’s Largest Dispensary and a must-see Las Vegas destination with entertainment and attractions that draw-in tourists from around the world," Bob said.
"We have surpassed our vision thanks to our remarkable team who are passionate and knowledgeable about cannabis, and they strive daily to offer a one-of-a-kind immersive customer experience."
Quoting his fellow co-founder Larry, Bob added: "Our goal is to out-Vegas, Vegas!"
It turns out there's a pretty special reason why the company decided to call themselves 'Planet 13', as Bob explained: "In case you were wondering, the numerical part of the name comes from the fact that the word marijuana starts with 'M', which is the 13th letter of the alphabet.
"The word Planet has a universal understanding as something massive.
"Planet was chosen to create that sense of scale.
"Planet 13 co-founder Larry Scheffler shares the story that marijuana smokers in the 1970s (when use and/or possession were serious felonies) created a sticker with the number 13 in a circle to place on cars to allow users to identify one another and maintain secrecy.
"To pay homage to those visionaries of long ago, we chose the name Planet Marijuana, which was shortened to Planet 13 to create mystique on a massive scale."
The debt-free company are hoping to expand to Florida and Illinois, where they plan to open 15 more locations within two years.
