Leave it to the free market to solve Colorado’s paucity of places to smoke legal weed.
Boulder, CO. company Bud and Breakfastlaunched Thursday, with a majority of listings in Colorado, as well as 420-friendly homes and rooms for rent in Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Jamaica, The Netherlands and Uruguay.
Bud and Breakfast CEO Sean Roby states: “We want to provide an accessible network of accommodations that meet high standards of quality, reliability and satisfaction for travelers who also wish to enjoy the benefits of this wonderfully healing plant.”
Travelers can use the website to search for accommodations worldwide, filtering by location, price, property type and amenities. Bud & Breakfast homeowners can restrict cannabis use to an exterior patio or only allowing vaporizers – “which may be there waiting for you when you arrive.”
Demand is likely to be high for the service. Colorado recorded $700 million in retail cannabis sales in 2014, and Denver cannabis tourism has been booming, yet places to smoke it are difficult to find. Four states and Washington D.C. have legalized cannabis for adults 21 and over. Thirty-five states have some form of medical cannabis law.
“This goes beyond people looking to smoke pot,” stated Roby. “There are families with sick children looking for alternative treatments and adults who live with handicaps being treated with cannabis. Bud and Breakfast makes it possible to find a comfortable setting – like a private home – to begin healing. It’s great to know we can help them.”
Wolf Creek, CO. hotel desk clerk Dave Power tells USA Today that being 420-friendly grew the business significantly, attracting a “different” Spring Break crowd that’s “quiet” and doesn’t “throw Jack Daniels bottles through the walls.”
