Checking out what’s going on with the Marijuana legalisation laws in the USA.
Sometimes business and pleasure combine. We’ve been spending some time checking out whats going on with the legalisation of cannabis in the USA. Our main port of call was Colorado, where weed is legal recreationally. This means you can walk into a shop and buy it without a doctors certificate or anything. It’s pretty much like buying booze at a bottle shop. A whole bunch of interesting industry has grown around the legalisation as well – such as My420 Tours which experienced. Bascially it’s like going on a wine tour but with weed as the focus. You get taken around to farms and dispensaries, and get to try samples of different herb, then at the end of the day you stay in a ‘420 friendly hotel’ which basically means they let potheads do their thing. What a concept. The lighter side aside, we also interviewed a group of seriously ill people who consume cannabis for medical purposes, and this opened up a whole different dimension, one thats not always fun and games but often a matter of life and death.
