So you’re visiting a state where recreational marijuana is legal. Congratulations! Now it’s time to get some of that green stuff and partake — but where are you supposed to get high if you don’t have a private residence?
That’s a problem two Alaskan brothers want to solve so they can get a nice slice of the state’s $260 million pot business: They own Juneau’s first marijuana retail shop and want to offer onsite consumption to cruise boat tourists, theAssociated Press reports.
“We have a lot of tourists that come to Juneau — over a million every year — and a place for them to consume responsibly seems like a good thing to do,” one of the brothers told the AP.
Regulators will discuss the idea of allowing retail stores in the state to provide separate areas of their business for customers who want to toke up.
