Revisiting Pot Tourism
We have previously talked about the idea of developing marijuana tourism in Nicaragua. The biggest issue was, as expected, how the US would respond to doing it. Well, with the law changes in the states of Colorado and Washington, it may be worth revisiting the issue.
An article in Activist Post talks about how the pot tourism idea is evolving in Colorado. (Visiting the article is worth it just for the graphic.) It offers a new data point.
There has been no issue with drug tourism in Amsterdam but it is both far away from the US and has a very different politicial relationship. Colorado, on the other hand, in in the middle of the US and shares borders and major highways with surrounding states. So, if Colorado can do it, why not Nicaragua?
An Amendment 64 Task Force was created to handle ongoing regulation of the open consumption and sale parameters. Regulators have noted that Amendment 64 does not exclude open consumption of cannabis by visitors, which has led to the current discussion about how to address pot tourism.
