DENVER (DP) - Welcome to canna-ful Colorado.

Two Denver entrepreneurs with ties to the medical-marijuana industry have started the nation's first marijuana tourism company. For several hundred bucks - prices vary between VIP and economy levels - My 420 Tours will pick visitors up at the airport, connect them to a pot-friendly hotel, set up hash-making demonstrations and dispensary-grow tours, and provide them with tickets to cannabis-themed events and concerts. The company's first package is built around April 20, a date cannabis enthusiasts regard as a holiday known as 4/20.

The tour company is pitching the collection of concerts, conventions and parties surrounding 4/20 in Denver as World Cannabis Week.

"If somebody flies out here," said James Walker, one of the company's owners, "we take care of the whole adventure for them."
Well, not quite.
