How did you ring in your New Year? In Colorado, we celebrated the end of the era of marijuana prohibition with massive pot parties through the hazy state. Thousands upon thousands flocked to Denver to be one of the first to purchase marijuana legally in over a century. Safe to say, it wasn’t just any New Year.
iBake Denver was Colorado’s first legal smoke shop. Not just the kind of smoke shop that sells smoking accessories, but a more of the Amsterdam coffee shop smoke shop. Although the sale of recreational marijuana has just begun in Colorado, iBake has allowed its customer’s to smoke on premise for almost a year. iBake and its owner have found a way within Amendment 64 to allow members to smoke within the confines of their members only club. The owner, Thurlow Weed, partnered with Incredibowl Industries and House of Dabs to throw a New Year’s Eve party to celebrate the end of marijuana prohibition.
The party involved a raffle, where incredibowl gave away an m420 and a couple hats, a cornucopia of food (medicated and unmedicated), and of course, lots of marijuana smoking in the forms of blunts, bongs, dabs and doobies.
The party started at 6PM with blunts and bowls and quickly escalated to dabs and edibles. The last 7:10 of 2013 elicited dabs at the bar while the DJ spun Cyprus Hill. The smokeout went on all night and into the morning.
iBake, located in Downtown Denver, has the unique benefits of providing free marijuana to customers that purchase more than $100 worth of merchandise within the store. It is another alternative for out-of-towners to get their legal marijuana. A lot of people will be coming to Colorado for weed tourism, and iBake offers the unique opportunity for them to buy a pipe or shirt, then smoke chronic marijuana onsite. Within the rules of Amendment 64, the gifting of marijuana is allowed, and this falls into that category.
The company also has legal, onsite grow operation that helps cut the costs of gifting marijuana to their customers.
iBake expects business to pop with the implementation of recreational marijuana that began on January 1st, 2014. They are expanding their attractions for their members to include comedy nights, LAN parties, and other attractions with the hopes of bringing in some of the locals as well as the pot tourists.
