COLORADO: Colorado’s marijuana tourists quickly run into a harsh reality after stopping at one of the state’s approximately 330 marijuana stores: Most hotels and ski condos prohibit indoor smoking of any kind, never mind the “kind” kind.
Enter Sean Roby and his new website, Bud and Breakfast. Roby aims to make his site the Air BnB of marijuana-friendly lodging, connecting visitors with homeowners willing to let their guests partake of legal marijuana. The site has about 50 listings from around the globe, with many in Colorado, and is an outgrowth of Roby’s existing of “Taste of Travel” company.
Among the current Colorado offerings: a loft in the trendy Denver Highlands neighborhood, tents near Pagosa Springs, renowned for its naturally heated mineral waters, and sunny room with an attached rooftop deck overlooking Boulder’s famed Flatirons. The site also features homes in Hawaii, Alaska and Uruguay. Listings are available only in places that have legalized either recreational or medical marijuana.
