Two Denver entrepreneurs with ties to the medical-marijuana industry have started the nation's first marijuana tourism company.
For several hundred bucks — prices vary between VIP and economy levels — 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.
The tour company is pitching the the week's events as World Cannabis Week.

Changes to Michigan's medical-marijuana law kick in Monday

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Some of the first significant changes to Michigan's medical-marijuana law kick in Monday, including extending the one-year registry cards to two years and setting rules for the doctor-patient relationship for medical-marijuana users.
Voters endorsed the use of medical marijuana in 2008 to alleviate side effects of certain illnesses, such as cancer or chronic pain. But lawmakers said the law left too much open to interpretation and pushed through bipartisan measures at the end of last session designed to clarify the act. One of the biggest changes defines the type of doctor-patient relationship needed before medical marijuana use can be certified.
Democratic Rep. Phil Cavanagh of Redford Township in Wayne County, who sponsored one of the bills, said lawmakers had concerns that the certificates were given out too liberally, like over the phone or Internet.
But starting Monday, doctors must complete face-to-face medical evaluations of patients, review their relevant medical records, and assess their medical condition and history. The amendments also require follow-up with patients after providing the certification to see whether the use of medical marijuana to treat the illness is working.

Washington State seeks to keep marijuana out of bars

SEATTLE — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee wants the state Liquor Control Board to figure out how to stop the spread of bars allowing marijuana consumption.
The issue became a concern for Inslee after an Associated Press story about two bars, Frankie’s in Olympia and Stonegate in Tacoma, letting patrons use marijuana within their walls.
Voters legalized recreational marijuana through Initiative 502. But I-502 prohibits public consumption. “We think the board needs to give this a very hard look,” said Inslee spokesman David Postman. “We will implement the will of the voters and create a well-regulated industry. Washingtonians did not vote for a wide-open policy.”
The board is considering its options. However, there’s “a loophole in the law that doesn’t allow the board to hold licensees accountable” for such activity, said board enforcement chief Justin Nordhorn.
