"Bud and breakfasts" are the travel trend waiting to happen
WJLA in DC has a story this week about what might become a brand new trend in travel: Cannabis bed and breakfasts, or “bud and breakfasts.” A High Escape in Washington, DC is Ayana Everett’s overnight destination in DC, and upon check-in, she rewards her customers with a couple of joints — “two fat pre-rolls,” as she calls them. Cannabis is legal in DC, and so why not appeal to stoner adults with a little gift? There are other cannabis-friendly rentals in DC as well, including a place called DCCannaDen, where you get free samples and can smoke as much as you want on the property.
Marijuana-based tourism is definitely a thing, especially in these days where partial legalization has people traveling from state to state in the US in search of a high they don’t have to worry about. Of course there are plenty of options in Colorado and Oregon, and even California has some good options, like this bud and breakfast up in Idyllwyld. There’s even a site (called, of course, budandbreakfast.com) to find a bud and breakfast near you.
We haven’t been able to visit one of these places just yet (but if you run one, we’d love to come out and write about it for you), but Bustle’s Rachel Krantz took a trip to visit one in Denver, and it sounds like a great time. Not only is it great to have a spot where you can get high in a home away from home, but it’s a great way to enhance the experience — traveling to a cozy spot is fun, and getting high when you get there is even better.
If you can’t buy cannabis in your home state, or could just use a weekend (or a week, or a month) away from your normal routines and want weed along for the ride, making a “bud and breakfast” stop could be just the thing.
