Colorado Pot Shops plan 'Green Friday'
Posted by Sagar Satapathy on November 27, 2014.
While people across the United States celebrate the Thanksgiving Day today on November 27 and gear up for the biggest shopping fiesta of the year (Black Friday) on November 28, the pot shops in Colorado have come up with a unique idea. They have decided to turn Black Friday into Green Friday by announcing smoking deals.
A store in Denver store was offering a limited number of ounces of marijuana for $50 each. This is much less than the $250 per ounce price, which is prevalent in the market. The store has been identified as Grass Station. Only the first 16 customers can avail of this opportunity.
As this is the first Black Friday since recreational marijuana has been allowed in Colorado, the pot shops are leaving no stones unturned to make it memorable. Colorado legalized recreational marijuana on January 1, 2014 although it had allowed medical marijuana years ago.
The 'Green Friday' deals include Sweetgrass Kitchen's single-serving marijuana-infused pumpkin pies, pumpkin-spice mocha chocolate bars containing eight servings of pot and discounts for customers who brought in canned food for the local homeless shelter. One dispensary is selling marijuana in the shape of mini Christmas trees.
The pot shops in Colorado claim that their offers have already generated much curiosity among the buyers. The next two days would be very crucial for the pot industry in Colorado. If the 'Green Friday' idea turns out to be a big success, the shop owners may be tempted to plan many such events in future. And, Christmas and New Year are not that far.comments powered by Disqus
