Legalize It: Colorado Opens Nation’s First Marijuana Resort

Do you like smoking marijuana, camping, getting massaged, meeting new people, or eating five star cuisine?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, then a new marijuana friendly resort in Colorado might be right up your alley.

CannaCamp, a 170-acre ranch resort in southwest Durango, Colorado will open in July as the nation’s first marijuana-friendly ranch resort, according to ABC News.

The marijuana friendly camp will feature daily wake and bakes, marijuana centric cooking, and marijuana education classes along with the ability to roam freely around the 170-acre ranch while smoking a doobie.

CannaCamp spokesman Joel Schneider told the New York Daily News that the ranch is designed to combine all the normal aspects of life at summer camp with a marijuana-centered lifestyle.

“We’re bringing an element of luxury to that adventurous, exploratory vibe of childhood summer camp, in a beautiful setting where visitors can enjoy marijuana in a safe, comfortable, social environment.”

But hang on. Before you get too excited and run off to book a cabin, there are a few rules.

First and foremost, CannaCamp can’t sell marijuana to campers, it’s against state law. They will, however, pick travelers up at the airport and provide a free marijuana dispensary tour before heading out to the ranch.

There’s also no smoking allowed inside the cabins, although you can smoke just about everywhere else.

A three-night minimum stay for the $395 a night cabins means only the well-to-do pot heads will be staying at the ranch.

Camp activities include hiking, biking, rock climbing, zip lining, bonfires, and yoga along with marijuana cooking and education classes.

The resort also promises to serve campers the perfect wine and cocktails to go with the five star meals prepared by gourmet chefs.

A 4:20 happy hour is scheduled everyday, as are nightly bonfires where guests can bond over a joint.

Colorado legalized recreational marijuana use in January 2014 and since then has faced a number of problems including a growing number of lawsuits from neighboring states.

Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing Colorado for contributing to a cross border nuisance and the Supreme Court has asked President Barack Obama to weigh in on the issue before they make a ruling, according to the Inquisitr.

The number of Colorado residents smoking marijuana has climbed dramatically in the last year or so, according to the Inquisitr.

The crime rate in the state, however, has plummeted with homicides and automobile break-ins and sexual assaults hitting all time lows, according to the Inquisitr.

So, if you’re looking to experience the great outdoors and get high at the same time maybe you should try Colorado’s new marijuana friendly CannaCamp.
