Times Colonist writes about concerts, festivals, legal pot smoking drawing tourists to Colorado. Thousands of people were expected to join an unofficial counterculture holiday celebrating marijuana in Colorado and Washington this coming weekend, including out-of staters and even packaged tours. The events and crowds tested the limits of new laws permitting pot use by adults. Colorado celebrated the holiday with the 420 Rally, World Cannabis Week, The High Times Cannabis Cup, and more. My 420 Tours featured packages for World Cannabis Week, giving an exclusive tour of pot themed events and activities. More than 50,000 were there to light up outdoors in Denver’s Civic Center Park on April 20 to celebrate marijuana legalization. Thousands more were headed to the nation’s first open-to-all Cannabis Cup, April 20-21, a U.S. version of an annual marijuana contest and celebration in Amsterdam. Expected guests at the Cannabis Cup, a ticketed event taking place inside the Denver Convention Center, included Snoop Lion, the new reggae- and marijuana-loving persona for the rapper better known as Snoop Dogg.
