Reports indicate, the number of tourists making trips to Colorado hospitals with weed-related complaints has increased from 85 per 10,000 in 2013 and 168 per 10,000 in 2014. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Mike Van Dyke explains,”A lot of people do different things when they’re home versus when they’re on vacation,” adding “Some people tend to do it overboard more when they’re on vacation.”

These numbers have come as a surprise to hospitals. Dr. Andrew Monte, a toxicologist and emergency room physician at the University of Colorado Hospital revealed “We didn’t expect people from out of state to actually be coming to the emergency department mentioning this drug more often.”
