(Newser) – While $420 seems like a more appropriate price, starting at $395 per person per night, marijuana smokers can treat themselves to a cannabis-filled Colorado vacation. Dubbed "CannaCamp," the 170-acre resort in Durango does not hand out pot nor sell it on site, but Time reports that its concierge will direct vacationers to area dispensaries; travelers can also bring their own. From there, guests can "experience the outdoors and cannabis in a safe, comfortable, and social environment," per the resort's site. That marijuana-filled environment doesn't include the cabins, though, which are smoke-free for safety reasons (porch smoking is allowed, notes the AP).

But pot permeates the rest of CannaCamp: There's a THC Fusion Cooking class, 4:20 Community Hour ("our version of Happy Hour"), cannabis yoga, cannabis-infused massages, cannabis pairing dinners ... and so on. And then there are the outdoors. As Mashable explains, most state and national parks prohibit toking, which makes CannaCamp's pot-friendly trails unusual. "We're bringing an element of luxury to that adventurous, exploratory vibe of childhood summer camp," is how Joel Schneider, CEO of the group behind the resort, frames it. CannaCamp opens July 1; reservations are being accepted now. (The world we live in now also includes marijuana K-cups.)
