Though Colorado tourism officials are still refusing to promote legal marijuana in the same way they proudly promote the far more toxic drug alcohol, that hasn’t stopped a major cannabis tourism industry from boosting the local economy. Looking at new travel data, the Huffington Post’s Denver bureau reports that there’s been a spike in demand for flights to Colorado just as the state officially legalized marijuana for recreational use. These numbers seem to confirm findings from Pando’s recent fact-finding trip to a legal marijuana store in Denver, where the parking lot was full of cars from states throughout the country. – Sirota
