    If the U.S. business people don't take advantage of an outrageously obvious and lucrative niche like this, we should just plain stop calling ourselves entrepreneurs.

    @martydotcom If the feds would calm down and California could get its act together, we could make a fortune in this state, too. Scenery, we got.

    @Zazziness sane here ; Ocean, beach, palm trees, sunshine, along with an abundance of evangelicals, tea party types & red necks.

    @kirbstomp1 It's hard to say greatest ever. The Raise the Bar episode with Honey Boo Boo was pretty amazing too.
    Lets just agree that Matt and Trey are freaking awesome.

    Smart. Very smart. We need to decriminalize ALL drugs. That way we destabilize the drug cartels and the inner city gang killings over drug turf. With the money we save on not fighting "the drug war" (yeah, right) we can devote more resources and cash to prevention programs, and treatment not just for drug addicts, but for mentally ill individuals with a history of violent behavior.

    mmmmm Now using a vice to promote tourism what a novel idea.Perhaps Nevada could open its legal prostitution to tourism and pick up a few badly needed dollars?

    I grew up in New Orleans and our tourism schemes focuses on the vice of alcohol. I couldn't gauge if you were being sarcastic or not but just thought I'd say its not that unusual.

    I don't know anyone that doesn't smoke because its illegal. We waste billions trying to stop it. Make it legal and raise the penalty for dwi and impaired driving.

    Fantastic idea, increased tourism means more business and more tax dollars for the state. Looks like I've got my next vacation planned... been meaning to go back for a while anyway.

    "Colorado just inched itself further in the direction of Amsterdam, legally if not physically."

    Pot tourism isn't legal in The Netherlands anymore.

    As for the rest of the article, the area around Durango has always been one of my favorite places. Now even more so.

    That was fast. They just stopped pot tourism early last year. When sweetie was there last June she was told that they were requiring proof of residency to purchase. And they were also really cracking down on residents for not carrying proof. Sweetie’s friend chewed out a cop who gave a ticket to a lady who was taking out her trash. That was in Maastrict.(?sp)

    @Thunderchicken well i read this in the press, i wasn't there, bu my impression was the article was talking specifically about coty of amsterdam, which probably relies on the revenue more then other cities in holland. I could be wrong on this, i wasn't there, and an in person report is more valuable then a news story, cause we know the press never gets things wrong!

    I have to say that if I were to want to live in a quasi socialistic country, it would be the Netherlands. I don’t like all the weird restrictions and taxes that Francis (sweetie’s friend who lives there) has told us about. But from sweetie’s first visit and what Francis has said, it sounds like a very laid back and pleasent place.

    @Thunderchicken It is laid back, but I think its more libertarian then socialistic, if my information is correct it is one of the few european countries that do not have socialized medicine...

    It makes one wonder...hunting is also a large industry in Colorado. Consuming alcohol while hunting is illegal. How about consuming pot while hunting? Old saying: "alcohol and gun power don't mix." How about pot and gun powder?

    I think a big difference between getting stoned and getting drunk is that when you are too stoned to do something, you know you are too stoned to do it. But when you are too drunk to do something, you think you can fly while doing it.

    Last I heard, the BATF decided that anyone with a medical marijuana card was automatically forbidden to own a gun.(The NRA, btw, was notably silent about that judgment.) Since Colorado legalized it for recreational use without a registration card, I think, I'm not sure how the feds would police it but their take seems to be "smoke a joint, you're a felon."

    @Zazziness I think you are right. Because its illegal federally. I think we are wasting a ton of money trying to enforce pot laws. I don't know anyone that smokes that is worried about getting caught. I personally would hire a pot smoker over a drunk.

    how about when your job does drug tests or if you get in an accident and the cops want to test you,hhow does that work,?i know walmart does a drug test if you have an on the job accident,most companies have an pre hiring drug test?whhat about truck drivers,thats federal?

    @MongoAPillager The big deal here is that even if you don't use the stuff you will now be subject to second hand smoke when anyone else tokes up. That will cause you to test positive if you get piss popped after being around someone using. The way these Colorado folks talk they all want to do it.

    We tax alcohol and we can tax pot. We have to find revenues and Pot is here to stay.
    Earmarking the Pot Tax to fund the unfunded State Pension tsunamis is a very good idea. Unfunded Pensions already forcing 30 cities in Calif to prepare for Municipal Bankruptcy and L.A. will go Bankrupty when the Tsunami hits in 2016.
    Better to tax Pot than over tax citizens.

    This just cracks me up. Ah the perils of Pauline. Pot tourism. Get it while you can. Take a trip and never leave the farm. Payday pot loans. What could some of the advertising slogans be?

    1.) This is not your father's smoke.
    2.) Have you been stoned today?
    3.) We're not talking just altitude anymore in Colorado
    4.) Visit the highest place in America
    5.) Ski Stoner run in Vail
    6.) Pardon me would you have any Grey Kush? But of course.
    7.) Vacation at the highest place in the Rockies
    8.) Colorado: One toke over the line
    9.) "I love you man". But you're still not getting my bud
    10.) Colorado: Where it's 4:20/24/7/365

    I don't know why this is even being debated. You could get a medical card living out of state before it was even legalized.
