Two Denver entrepreneurs…have started the nation’s first marijuana tourism company. For several hundred bucks…My 420 Tours will pick visitors up at the airport, connect them to a pot-friendly hotel, set up hash-making demonstrations and dispensary-grow tours, and provide them with tickets to cannabis-themed events and concerts. The company’s first package is built around April 20, a date cannabis enthusiasts regard as a holiday known as 4/20.

Instead…they will help clients gain access to events — such as the High Times Cannabis Cup — where marijuana is likely to be shared freely and, they contend, legally.
