Pot Votes in Colorado & Washington Raise Specter of Weed Tourism

Hit the slopes- and then hit a bong?

Marijuana legalization votes this week in Colorado and Washington state don’t just set up an epic state-federal showdown on drug laws for residents.  The measure also opens the door for marijuana tourism.

Both measures make marijuana possession in small amounts okay for all adults over the age of 21.  The measures affect not just state residents but visitors, too.  Tourists may not be able to pack the bowls along with their bags, but as long as out-of-state tourists purchase and used the drug while in Colorado or Washington, they wouldn’t violate the new measures.

That’s assuming the recreational marijuana measures take effect at all.  That was very much a matter of conjecture on Friday as states awaited word on possible action from the federal government.
