20 Just the Facts

Keep your head in the (smoke) clouds with our guide to a hempy summer.
By William Breathes
n January 1, 2014, Colorado became the first state in the country to allow stores to sell recreational marijuanaâ€”and the rush to the Rockies began. Friends, relatives and distant acquaintances began calling Coloradans, making plans to enjoy a real Rocky Mountain high. To help entertain the tourism troops rolling into town this summer, hereâ€™s our first Ask a Stoner vacation guide.
Where to Stay
Note that all hotel rooms in Colorado are non-smoking unless otherwise designated â€” and smoking herb in a nonsmoking room will get you the same fine that smoking a cigarette would. Still, there are several low-budget hotels, like La Quinta, that have smoking rooms, and if you want to step it up while on vacation (or stay-cation), check out the Warwick Hotel on the edge of downtown for a
room with a balcony view west, toward the mountains, or east, overlookingDen-verâ€™s Uptown neighborhood. Itâ€™s been a favorite for years of late-night partiers who are here for concerts at Red Rocks and the Fillmore.
Heading to Boulder for a night? The Millennium Hotel has reasonably priced rooms with balconies, and itâ€™s within walking distance of the University of Colorado campus andallofthefoodand shopping options on the Hill. If you really want to step up your game, get a suite at the swanky St. Julien in downtown Boulder. It isnâ€™t cheap, but the suite-level balcony views of the Flatirons and the downtown mall are priceless.
And some of the best stoner accommodations arenâ€™t hotels at all. We highly suggest checking out airbnb.com, where people rent out their extra space â€” anything from a daybed to an entire house. You can search for 420-friendly spots all over Colorado, including some choice locations in Denver, Breckenridge, Aspen and Vail. Not only that, but if youâ€™re renting directly from a fellow toker, itâ€™s likely that your continued on page 10
