Colorado has a reputation for gorgeous scenery, party mountains, and of course, legal weed. But the executives at Denver Airport don't love the budding pot tourism industry, and, as a result, are banning airport vendors from selling marijuana-themed souvenirs.
The pot prohibition stems from retailer High-ly Legal Colorado (so clever!), which sells weed-themed goods at several Denver music stores, trying to set up an airport kiosk to peddle marijuana-themed boxers, “pot flops,” and other stoner souvenirs.
“Why is everybody so riled up about the picture of a plant?” owner Ann Jordan asked. As Jordan told the Associated Press, the airport's currently promoting craft brews in a dedicated exhibit, but banning pot, which, like alcohol, is legal to anyone in Colorado over 21. Airport execs “just haven’t come to grips that this is a whole new world and they need to adapt,” she added.
