Will Legal Pot Make Colorado Ski Homes a Smoking Commodity? Realtors Doubt Toking Will Lead to a New Joint

By Joanna England | February 19, 2014 | Comments Off on Will Legal Pot Make Colorado Ski Homes a Smoking Commodity? Realtors Doubt Toking Will Lead to a New Joint

We’ve seen photos and stories from Colorado ski towns such as Aspen and Breckenridge showing vacationers filing lines out the door at marijuana shops, so of course, we had to wonder what kind of impact legal pot could have on Colorado real estate.

But is recreational marijuana a boon for Colorado real estate, or a burden?

Ranch of the Week: Home Is Where The Horse Is

By Kathryn Roan | January 31, 2014 | 2 Comments
