DENVER, April 25 (UPI) -- Some Colorado homeowners are trying to cash in on the state's recent legalization of marijuana by turning their homes into 4/20-friendly accommodations for tourists who want to toke up.

By partnering with airTHC, which is like Airbnb but with marijuana-friendly accommodations, locals like Tracey Smith are trying to make some green by letting guests from out of state get high.

“We know people are going to come up here and do it anyway, so we just figured, why not?” Smith told CBS Denver. “I think people are going to feel comfortable coming to the site and saying that’s why they’re here.”

Colorado law doesn’t permit pot-smoking in public places and most hotels don’t allow smoking in general.

“We can provide places like this where they can come, they can ski for the day and enjoy cannabis legally, and not necessarily bring a bad image to Colorado,” said airTHC co-founder Jordan Conner.

Dozens of people have listed their homes with the site since the law went into effect.

“The legalization of marijuana in Colorado not only represents a gigantic step forward in the movement to have the versatile plant decriminalized nationally, but it presents great opportunities for those who enjoy unwinding with a good smoke,” according to the airTHC website.
