Though we associate potheads with dim-witted losers thanks to TV and movies, you would be wrong in assuming that weed is just for laughs. In fact, for years now, it’s becoming glaringly obvious that as weed is legalized in the states, the marijuana business is booming. If you position yourself as a good salesman you can very well make a fortune off of selling cannabis. Now, we’re not talking about a low-level street dealer selling a few ounces for $20 bucks. In this particular case, it was a single dad who saw a real big opportunity to make a profit.

9. One Single Father Assessed The Climate
Single father Michael Eymer assessed the landscape of the weed community and recognized that there was a huge opportunity to make a pretty penny. So, with his insight, he decided to launch Colorado Cannabis Tours in January 2014. This was a significant moment to start the business because marijuana had just became legalized within that year.
8. A Man With A Passion
For Eymer, this started out as a passion project. “I keyed into the business opportunity early on. I’ve always had some involvement in the industry even before it was official. Then, seeing all these changes happening in Colorado, I just thought it was the perfect time to seize the opportunity.”
7. He Had To Experiment To Stand Out
Eymer’s idea for this company didn’t happen overnight. He moved to Colorado to manage dispensaries. The competition was too tough, so he decided to get a bit more experimental and took to the streets of Denver. What he had that vendors didn’t is the availability of accepting credit cards, which aided the booming business.

6. Expanding The Culture Of Weed
At first, the business was an independent operation. Eymer started driving around four people in a small sedan to check out the dispensaries. Then he gradually upgraded to party buses once his business really started to take off. Now, these fun-filled buses host upwards to 200 people for exciting cannabis-themed tours.
