Ah, Colorado

I just got back from a week long visit to Colorado; Denver to be precise.  Hadn't visited in four years and can't believe I forgot how nice it is out there.  Beautiful climate, friendly and open culture, spectacular landscapes, and a fun, vibrant city.  I had the chance to take a hike in an area called North Table Park which was my first true hike in the area.  The views only scratched the surface of the views this state has to offer.  Can't wait until my next visit.  A few of my favorite shots are below and feel free to take a look at the Flickr album of my visit if you'd like.

Marijuana Tasting Tours Are Popping Up In Colorado

In Colorado, one of the most progessive states when it comes to marijuana reform, there are actually places cropping up where you can take "tours" based on sampling high quality strains of locally grown marijuana.  While the linked article pokes fun, I don't think this is too far off from actually happening as laws progress.

I did a little searching on Google and I very much believe that this could be a money maker.  Based around World Cannabis week, a yearly event in Denver (around you guessed it, April 20th) the tours sound like a souped up trip to Amsterdam where the fun is taken care of, all-inclusive style.

Each of the three packages offered for this particular tour include individuals being picked up at the airport, connecting them with marijuana-friendly motels that are fine with customers consuming on their premises, as well as connecting people with concerts, cannabis samples, etc..

Laugh all you want but people will pay for this.  Just take a look at the site where you can order one of these tours: all are sold out.
