Manitou Springs Bed And Breakfast Becoming Pot Friendly

(Manitou Springs, CO) -- A longtime bed and breakfast in Manitou Springs is putting out the welcome mat for pot smokers. The historic Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast recently changed its policy on marijuana, but says it's not intended to draw in more business. The owners say since the drug is legal in Colorado, they just decided to make some changes. There's no smoking inside, but pot smokers can enjoy a puff in the private backyard or on the patio. It comes as the first recreational pot shop opened in Manitou Springs yesterday. It's also the first in El Paso County.
