Legal weed sales in Colorado will to take marijuana tourism to new plateaus this year. (All apologies for the pun.) Spiro Tours, created by ex-New York City equity derivatives trader Nick Brown, will offer the world's first luxury cannabis tours.
Brown explained the company's goals in a press release:
Our brand new cannabis tours in Colorado are a world-first, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to remove ill-conceived and poorly constructed ideas about cannabis from the public perception. We want to educate all of our clients, destigmatizing responsible cannabis usage and emphasizing that there is a safe, responsible way to explore this new world without the clichés and bad press.
In addition to education about the culture (i.e., smoking a lot of weed), Spiro Tours wants to expose visitors to the five-star hotel experience, fine dining and seasonal gifts, depending on the time the visit. That could include skiing or visiting Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which is one of the best concert venues in the world.
Per a press release, state law makes "no distinction between residents and non-residents" when it comes to marijuana possession, so everyone is welcome to enjoy the spirit of Spiro Tours. This year will always be remembered as the year marijuana tourism took off.
