The 60 Minutes broadcast crew profiles cannabis tourism in Colorado, one of the first states to legalize pot for recreational use.
In all of our lives, in all of our experiences, marijuana, except in some instances for medical marijuana, marijuana has been illegal.
You go to Colorado now and everything you thought about it is turned upside-down.
It’s legal. It’s mind-blowing.
You go into a warehouse and it’s a huge warehouse full of marijuana plants. And one we visited for our story is right across the street from a police station. You can smell it when you’re driving by.
You can smell the marijuana in the air. And it’s all legal.
