Amendment 64 officially came into play January 1 at midnight, making marijuana legal to purchase and consume in private, across Colorful Colorado. Allegedly, dispensaries across Summit had lines around the block from the time they opened at 9:00am until closing. That said, it is estimated that Colorado alone is expected to bring in over $70 million in bottom line revenue off marijuana taxes. Wow. 

Anyway, a couple of things you should note before traveling to CO to toke up on the slopes (which based on what I heard from Lodge guests yesterday, is tops on a lot of peoples’ lists).

1) Amendment 64 is state specific amendment. That said, it is still unlawful to smoke on federal land. This is an important distinction because most ski resorts are located on National Forest Land, making it illegal to smoke weed on the slopes.   

2) Toking up in public is still illegal. The amendment specifically states that private consumption is now allowed, not smoking a joint while walking down the street. Also interesting to note that if you are planning on skiing Keystone sometime in the near future, it is unlawful to smoke in YOUR car in a KEYSTONE owned parking lot. You will be ticketed. 

3) If you are staying at the Keystone Lodge and Spa, or any other Keystone managed property, they are still non-smoking facilities. That applies to weed. If you are caught smoking in your hotel room/condo unit, a $250 cleaning fee, per night, will be applied to your bill. 

Happy smoking!
