Is Denver Still a Draw for Marijuana Tourism?

Colorado was the first state in the country to legalize recreational marijuana, which inspired a wave of hash tourism. But in a recent letter to our Stoner, an upcoming guest wondered if it’s still worth coming to town to get cannabis.

“I’m visiting Denver soon and was told that I can not really smoke weeds anywhere nor can we get weeds delivered to my hotel,” he wrote. “Is that true? Why do cannabis people bother to visit more at all?”

In their comments to Westword Facebook post of this Ask a Stoner column, readers have plenty of suggestions on the tourism trade – and the marijuana scene in general. Ellie says:

God, I hope it’s worn out. Too many people moved here and came here for this. And no, I’m not a smoker and I do not hate it.

Mike suggests:

Colorado needs to get over itself. Everywhere I went, there were shirts, hats, and stickers from “4:20 Colorado.” I live in Chicago now, and when Illinois legalized recreation, there were no T-shirts in the stores on Michigan Avenue that advertised it.

Kimberly answers:

That’s because you do not live among lots of dunces. I have lived here for thirty years and even people who live here, including natives, carry their 420 or even head-to-two Colorado equipment. I think it’s stupid.

Counters Tillis:

That’s because the movement and culture behind it is not as dynamic as it is here in Denver! This city is actually celebrating the legalization of marijuana. This place is the epicenter of marijuana – medical and recreational. We were the first state to legalize it.

But Brian notes:

Our weeds stink now. Everyone sold out for the mighty dollar .. do not believe me? Come and spend more on something you will immediately regret.

Graeme adds:

Our weeds are garbage. It is overtaxed. The whole state is way too expensive. And we do not even have a decent food scene to deal with all that.

Helen’s conclusion:

Although some places are bad, the fact that we have been legal for a while has created another niche for people who come from states that have no legal or those who are still at the beginning of legalization, where the state is still negative. It’s a safe alternative in Colorado, and people know it, and then you add all the Colorado benefits – that’s a big yes.

For the record, our Stoner advises: “Come out, visit a pharmacy and tour the city – you will see why people keep visiting, and also see that it is not so difficult to find a place to consume your new souvenirs. ”
