Cannabis tourism in the United States is rapidly expanding (especially on the West Coast), which is why we recently took the time to explore five great weed-friendly domestic destinations. However, America doesn’t have a lot of great cities where you can get stoned and eat some delicious food. There are cities worldwide that have either legalized cannabis or have adopted and ignored it.
You may be sitting on a tropical white sand beach toking the locally grown herb next week if you can afford to book a flight and take some time off work. Alternatively, you may be high in a cannabis café before visiting a reputable museum and discovering a fresh appreciation for other people’s ingenuity. And, no matter where you go, you’ll have to use your weed-amped appetite to consume all of the foods. After all, travel is supposed to be a sensory overload.
The cities listed below allow cannabis usage and are fantastic tourism destinations, drug or no drug. We’ve provided a place to stay and eat with each other, but you’re free to customize your vacation. Above all, behave yourself when getting high in another country, and you must show respect for the country you are visiting.
The hottest international vacation destination this year has a great climate (it receives more sun than anywhere else in Europe), a tonne of street art (tours are available), and a fantastic food scene (which includes a tonne of rooftop bars and restaurants). Even better, in 2001, tiny amounts of all narcotics were decriminalized, and optional counseling took the place of prison sentences. That isn’t to say that there aren’t any legal sales or lounges, but it does imply that if you have any marijuana, you won’t be hassled by the cops.
There are no specifically cannabis-friendly accommodations. In Lisbon, you won’t find a bed & breakfast. However, many fantastic houses to stay in make for a great vacation. And, honestly, how much time will you spend in your room anyway? My Story Hotel Rossio is one of our favorites, as it feels like the child that the 17th century and the pop art movement never intended to have. Consider the use of antique tiles, chandeliers, and neon lighting. In addition, 18 of the rooms have a view of the Rossio, allowing you to watch the city go by whenever you choose.
Dope may intensify your sweet cravings, so if that describes you, then dope may be right up your alley, make a point of visiting a pastelaria during your visit to Lisbon. The best chance is to go to Antiga Confeitaria de Belém in Lisbon’s hardcore tourist area early in the day and wait in a lengthy, painful line. Save a box of these puff pastry and egg custard delicacies for when you get home from the party.
