As Colorado becomes the first state in the nation to allow recreational marijuana sales beginning Jan. 1, a budding pool of "potrepreneurs" have high hopes for an influx of out-of-town pot tourists.
Colorado High Life Tours, which promises "fun, affordable and discreet" cannabis-centered excursions, is expanding its private and public limo and bus tours.

Cannabis-friendly guides, activities and tours in Colorado are already available. As of Dec. 30, 14 retail marijuana stores in Denver had received licenses to open on the first of the year and two dozen other marijuana-related businesses that had met the city's licensing requirements were awaiting approval.
Beyond the Mile High City, more than 25 other towns and cities will allow medical marijuana businesses to start adding or transitioning to retail marijuana sales Jan. 1.
