Every year seems to bring a new place that weed has been legalized for medicinal or recreational use. Cannabis tourism has become a growing trend as people start flocking to these places to light up legally. Whether they’re from a state where it’s illegal or are looking for a place to vacation where they can bring their favorite toke, cannabis tourism is becoming big business. All these new laws and locations come with their own host of regulations that can make smoking legally full of pitfalls. That’s why we’re here to help clear the air by sharing some of the best places in the nation to go if you want to smoke legally.
Alaska has been legal for nearly two years for those who are over the age of 21, but it took them a while to finally open a dispensary so people could buy legally. If you’re looking for beautiful mountains and forests that are mostly untouched by the hand of man, it’s hard to beat the rugged wilderness of Alaska. After your stop at the dispensary head on out to Chugach National Park and Forest to enjoy a smoke out on the hiking trails that crisscross the park.
2016 was a hallmark year for one of America’s oldest cities, with residents over 21 being allowed to both possess and make use of up to an ounce of marijuana ever since. That means that you can enjoy everything the city has to offer while riding easy on a cloud of your favorite smoke. With so many famous landmarks to visit and beautiful parks to relax in, it’s a great place to visit on your cannabis tour.
Dropping into Vermont means that you have the right to carry a full ounce of weed, and residents are even allowed to grow two plants of their own! For cannabis tourists, this is excellent news, especially if you’ve got a taste for vintage art, funky clothes, and artisan crafts that can be found at the expansive Church Street Marketplace in the heart of the city. Before you settle in for the night, be sure to stop in and enjoy locally brewed apple cider at Citizen Cider.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Las Vegas is all about options, and one of those options includes whether to smoke up, or to indulge in oil, shatter, or wax while you’re enjoying time on the strip. While in this state those over 21 are allowed to carry an ounce of the former, or up to an eighth of an ounce of the latter purchased straight from local dispensaries. There’s so much to keep you occupied in the city that relaxing at the end of the night with pot in your favorite form is going to be a necessity.
These are just some of the places in the nation that you can enjoy cannabis while on vacation, and more are becoming available with every passing year. Research your destinations carefully to make sure you’re in line with local ordinances, and then toke accordingly!
