Is Pot Tourism a Reality in America?

Is Pot Tourism a Reality in America?

Legalized recreational marijuana has drawn attention—and tourists—to the West Coast, but it may take a while before Denver and Seattle become America’s answer to Amsterdam.

The exact details of the story are hazy, but it goes something like this: Last April, a certain über-famous hip-hop artist (better known these days for his prodigious pot habit than for his ability to rock a mic) was checking in to a Denver hotel prior to taking the stage for a concert on 4/20, the day the Mile High City’s stoners celebrate cannabis. This would be no ordinary pot party, though; thanks to voters’ approval of Amendment 64 in November 2012, the recreational consumption of marijuana was legal.
