Shop of the Month – Up’N Smoke Fort Collins
Just north of Denver at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, you’ll find the beautiful city of Fort Collins! Dubbed Colorado’s craft beer capital because of its collection of over 20 breweries, there’s no shortage of things to do in Fort Collins. It’s got 300 days of sunshine, snow-capped mountains, lakes, rivers, and our Shop of the Month, Up’N Smoke.
Located at the heart of Fort Collins, Up’N Smoke is surrounded by local eateries, pubs, boutiques and some of the most gorgeous scenery you’ve seen in your entire life. Their mission is to offer a wide array of smoking supplies, CBD, and vapes in every price range with 5 star customer service. They have worked hard to build a sales team that prides themselves in guiding you to find exactly what you’re looking for, using their extensive product knowledge.
For half a decade, Up’N Smoke has built a relationship with the locals by listening to their needs and interests. They hold hundreds of pieces with prices that will bring a smile to everyone’s face, and a substantial selection of local Colorado art as well as art from around the country. At the end of the day, their goal is for all of their customers to leave the store feeling happy and confident about their purchases. Customer service, rather than sales, is the main objective that staff strives to achieve every day.
Up’N Smoke actually has its own glass blowing studio, Moxie Glass Inc. While they’ve got an extensive collection of all pieces a smoker could ever want, it’s the incredibly welcoming staff, store cleanliness, and unbeatable prices that turn people into repeat customers. If you’re in the area, start your year off right by visiting Up’N Smoke! This place constantly has deals, raffles, and new products added to their collection.
One of the great things about Colorado, as you probably already know, is that it was the first state to legalize the recreational adult use of cannabis! Colorado Amendment 64 officially legalized weed in November 2012, and it allows people who are at least 21 to grow up to six cannabis plants, legally possess all cannabis they grow, travel with no more than one ounce, and gift up to one ounce to other adults.
However, keep in mind that there are rules to the law. Public use is still illegal, so save it for home. Also keep out from behind the wheel if you’re smoking, as you’ll get a DUI.
In 2017, Colorado collected over $247 million from its legal cannabis industry – in taxes, licensing costs, fees, and more. Hopefully other states can look at this fact and see it as an opportunity for them to start raising new revenue through legalization. We’re hoping for big things in 2019! In the meantime, stay safe, know the state laws, and keep things on the down-low by picking up a Dime Bags product to store your stash in a smell-proof and stylish way.
