Marijuana advocates in Colorado and Washington are counting down the minutes till the two states become the first to legalize recreational marijuana for adults on January 1, 2014.
The nation will be keeping a close eye on the two states to witness history and to follow the billion dollar industry which will generate millions in tax revenue and for businesses associated with the marijuana industry.
One new market is marijuana tourism which will provide marijuana tours to adult tourists that are expected to flock to the Amsterdam-style marijuana culture that will now be found in the states.
One Colorado marijuana dispensary owner stated “I have people driving in from Texas, Arizona, Utah… to be a part of history. Just the novelty alone is bringing people from everywhere.”
American tourists and international tourists alike will be headed to Colorado and Washington state this year to be a part of history and enjoy the new culture found within those two states.
