Although the idea for a “bud and breakfast” place started here in Colorado with Denver’s canna-tourism hotspot Bud + Breakfast, it was too fantastic of an idea to stay local. Now that California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada have legalized recreational marijuana, you can be sure that you will be able to visit a bud and breakfast or a marijuana-friendly hotel in any of these states over the next five years. There are many marijuana-friendly lodgings in Colorado, but your best bet used to be AirBnB or VRBO where you could talk to people and figure out what they were okay with. Recreational legalization has changed all that, though, and now celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Charlie Sheen, and Miley Cyrus are rumored to be planning on opening marijuana-friendly lodgings in California.
Bud, Breakfast & Celebrities
While they certainly aren’t the first people to do it, Snoop Dogg, Charlie Sheen, and Miley Cyrus may be the most famous celebrities to start up a chain of marijuana-friendly mid-range hotels in California. Snoop has been busy, in case you didn’t know. It’s almost like he’s been waiting for this California recreational legalization moment his entire life – he represents the chronic in more ways than one, and also represents the California music and film business.
Snoop Dogg & Cannabis
In fact, these days, there aren’t many businesses that Snoop doesn’t have his joint in – from music to movies to marijuana delivery services like Eaze, Snoop’s investments are all over the map business-wise but becoming more concentrated on cannabis. Besides Eaze, Snoop launched his Leafs by Snoop cannabis product line in Denver not too long ago, and has just partnered with Canada’s Canopy Growth and subsidiary Tweed to sell his line there. Snoop’s venture firm is aptly called Casa Verde Capital, and its website says it’s interested in tech, media, communications, health and wellness, agtech and agriculture, consumer and retail, business and financial services, and r&d – also, Casa Verde is hiring. If you haven’t caught Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, you should check it out. It goes perfectly with an evening joint or a glass of wine, or both. Expect to see Snoop all over your cannabis-associated products and services in the future.
Charlie Sheen & Cannabis
Charlie Sheen cannabis is an indica-dominant hybrid created from Green Crack, Blue Dream, and OG Kush according to Leafly. Charlie Sheen himself is a much more difficult breed to pin down, but is a famous actor, television personality, and occasional crazy person who revealed that he was HIV-positive to the world in November of 2015. Since medical cannabis is highly recommended and legal in many states for HIV/AIDS, it’s only fitting that Sheen would throw his influence and cash into the marijuana lodging opportunity presenting itself.
Miley Cyrus & Cannabis
Speaking of outspoken celebrities, Miley Cyrus has also invested in Snoop’s cannabis-friendly lodging adventure. This is after she apparently stunned the world by smoking cannabis onstage at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards. I wasn’t shocked, were you? Since her marijuana heyday, IB Times has revealed that her fiancé Liam Hemsworth (think Hunger Games) has asked her to quit smoking cannabis. Cyrus said she hadn’t smoked for two months back in April of this year; she will be starring in Woody Allen’s new Amazon TV series, “Crisis in Six Scenes.” Sure, Miley, we’ll believe that one as much as we believed Snoop back when he “quit” cannabis, too.
