Skip to comments.Reefer gladness: Mile High City’s pitch to the high-end weed smoker
Posted on 01/26/2014 8:55:21 PM PST by smokingfrog
So you want to get high in a high-end way in the Mile High City? You could call Dale Dyke and his wife, Chastity Osborn, a massage therapist, who run Get High Getaways. They gutted their brick house in Bel Mar and let it go to pot, refashioning it as a clothing optional, or as Dale calls it, textile optional bed-and-breakfast.
Theyre still waiting for their first big booking, but Chastity says theyre busily adding amenities to create a resort environment, including a stone labyrinth with a tether ball, a camera in the living room to Skype your friends stoned and an outdoor swing where you can have a good time and catch a buzz.
They charge $199 (145) per person per night you have to be over 21 and offer two rooms, 24/7 car service and a hot tub. They can give, rather than sell, their homegrown pot to guests. Chastity will even serve her marijuana-infused yummies textile-free, if you like. (The couple are proud members of the American Association for Nude Recreation.) We want the higher-end clientele, 38-year-old Chastity says. Comedians. Adult film entertainers. Musicians. Dale chimes in: Were trying to keep stoned tourists from getting lost in Denver and causing mayhem. Our motto is: Dont come on vacation and leave on probation.
The blooming pot industry here is still more seedy than glossy. Yet the budding bud growers are eager to help Denver elude the stigma of Rocky Mountain Low, a shadowy place overrun by The Dude Abides hippies and Jeff Spicoli stoners. People are learning not to be ashamed, 45-year-old Dale says. No more talking in whispers. Were moving away from the image of dumb stoner teenagers to older successful businesspeople who can admit theyre stoners.

There’s a very good reason why they call it ‘dope’.
Legal or not, I’ll always view dope peddlers as being on the same moral equivalent as pimps. Human trash.
I suppose they will pick up a lot of tourist dollars, but also a lot of trouble to go along with it.
So, you're saying that purveyors of the legal drug alcohol - which has destroyed millions of lives - are the moral equivalent of "pimps," right?
I just want to know: Do you tell bartenders that to their faces?
Haters gonna hate. More people than you realize and some you probably know but don’t know smoke marijuana recreationally.
For me I gave it up after college.
see post #2...also, you missed the big meeting here last week, opinions are now allowed.
Chastity and Dale Dyke?
no I could not resist!
High end users? Without the obvious pun.....are there any? Most I’ve known have been on the lower end of the socio-economic scale.
I would if I went to bars.
peas luff and lite, man
Why are dopers so obsessed with booze? But as long as you bring it up, if I were a store-owner, I would not allow liquor to be sold in my store. Nor would I ever take a job as a bartender.
Some dope peddler, who sells mind-altering crap for which anywhere from 1-in-6 to 1-in-10 get addicted, is my definition of cretinous evil. Legal or not.
From my experience you can use alcohol in moderation, have few drunks feel good and go home. When people light up their intention is to get high, stoned, completely gonzo. There is no moderation at all.
interesting moniker LOL
There are a lot. The upper middle class does some serious, though obviously much less public, dope smoking. And they go in for some seriously expensive stuff.
Chastity, the nudist "massage therapist". Sounds like someone there may already be a pimp.
