Colorado Locals Start Marijuana Tourism Business
Matt Brown and James Walker have started a travel company aimed at those looking to take advantage of the state's new marijuana laws.
According to NBC News, the company known as My 420 Tours sets travelers up in "pot-friendly" hotels, takes them on tours of marijuana dispensaries, and secures tickets to pot-related events.
The state of Colorado legalized recreational use of marijuana towards the end of last year although the commercial side of things - that is, selling the drug to others - is yet to be approved. To get around this, Brown and Walker facilitate introductions between travelers and those involved in the local cannabis industry.
"It's an opportunity for people who prefer marijuana to alcohol to come to Colorado and know that they're not going to have to walk around downtown asking strangers for pot," Brown told NBC.
Their first tour slated for the end of April has already been a sell-out, but the duo hopes to offer more pot-themed travel packages in the future.
