Until a few years ago, Amsterdam’s coffee shops were the go-to destination for worry-free cannabis experiences. Now, fueled by legalization efforts and a growing cultural acceptance of cannabis, other countries and cities have popped up on the weed travel map. So much so that a new, multi-billion dollar niche within the travel industry emerged.

But contrary to what most would think, cannabis tourism isn’t just about traveling to get high. It’s about creating immersive experiences that educate and entertain, all while integrating cannabis into the mix. It’s also about breaking stereotypes and exploring local cultures from a different perspective. 

Cannabis Tourism Hotspots

If cannabis tourism is a thing, it is thanks to legalization. In the US, 19 states (plus Washington D.C.) have legalized recreational cannabis use for adults. As a result, there has been an uptick in tourism across the board and, consequently, a rise in opportunities.

For instance, Colorado, the first US state to allow recreational cannabis in 2012, has seen a dramatic growth in tourism revenue, with Denver reporting a 4.7% increase in hotel occupancy rates directly linked to cannabis tourism. Visitors often come to experience the city’s thriving cannabis scene, known for a variety of cannabis-infused activities like yoga classes and painting sessions. But also to join cannabis retreats in the Rocky Mountains, where they go on guided hikes as well as partake in cannabis-themed outdoor cooking classes.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released the following statement after President Joe Biden announced he would not seek reelection this November: 

“America owes a debt of gratitude to President Joe Biden for his decades of service. He and his team took us out of CoViD, stabilized the country, and restored the soul of the nation. 

“President Biden is now again delivering for the American people by passing the torch at a critical moment, when the country needs strong leadership from a new generation. 

“From here, the Democratic Party must continue to put working-people first and address their concerns about the cost of living, public safety, and our shared democratic values. I look forward to working with senior members of the party as we make our push towards November and ensure we address the concerns of New Yorkers and all Americans.”

Editorial

You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.

As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.

Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.

It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.

You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.

As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.

I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.

As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…
