Jacob Sullum has an interesting article: Colorado’s Cannabis Consumption Conundrum
But once a visitor settles on a gram of Budderface or a quarter-ounce of Cinderella 99, he has a problem: Where can he smoke it? State and local restrictions have made answering that question a much bigger challenge than it needs to be.
This is something that needs to be figured out – one of the things about legalization has to be enabling a social aspect to cannabis use. You should be able to go listen to a band, or get together with people in a “coffee shop” kind of place.
And the lack of smoking places is going to drive tourists dabbling in cannabis to choose edibles, which is not the way to first experience it, in my mind.
