The Brave New World of Cannabis Tourism

Marijuana is now legal for recreational use in nine states and Washington, D.C. (and, soon, Canada), and for medical use in 22 others (along with Puerto Rico and Guam). If you include states that allow the sale of products containing marijuana-derived cannabidiol (also known as CBD, a non-psychoactive chemical found in the plant), only four places in America—Idaho, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas—still ban marijuana entirely.

Legal cannabis is here to stay, and a mature industry of growers, product manufacturers and retailers is starting to pull itself together, which means it’s also becoming a draw for tourists to pot-friendly destinations. And while the sale and possession of marijuana remain a federal crime, innovative businesses around the country are testing the waters of catering to tourists looking to take advantage of rapidly relaxing cannabis laws.

In 2015, Oregon became the third state to legalize recreational marijuana. “It was big news, but guests were a little shy and afraid to broach the subject,” says Al Munguia, general manager of the Jupiter Hotel’s two locations in Portland. “As people in the hospitality industry, our job is to make the customer comfortable, so we decided, ‘Let’s start the conversation ourselves.’” Munguia partnered with local cannabis businesses to create the 420 Package, which includes an issue of Oregon Leaf magazine, a vape pen and a package of coupons and other goodies from nearby dispensaries.
