For more than four years, 420 Tours provided thousands of tours for cannabis enthusiasts — catering to tourists and locals alike — in Denver. But now the city is cracking down on the unique transportation concept.
A team of undercover officers pulled over two tour buses on Friday, citing more than 30 passengers who were partaking in marijuana while the vehicle was on the road. One of the drivers was busted for driving under the influence of cannabis.
According to Denver’s 9News, Eric Escudero with the Department of Excise and Licenses said his office has sent letters to the tour companies warning them that they are not operating within the law. According to city officials, the tour bus outfits are operating illegally. Escudero believes that under current law, there is no wiggle room for tour bus companies to continue business operations in Denver.
