Cannabis friendly RV park planned in Oregon
A very new idea for the motorhome experience is to be launched by Grow Condos, a publicly traded company which says that it is dedicated exclusively to the cannabis industry which is planning a RV park especially for those who like to smoke weed.
The camp is Lake Selmac Resort & RV Park, situated in Southern Oregon and .located 20 miles south of Grants Pass and 2.5 miles east of the Redwood Highway (Hwy. 199) in Selma, Lake Selmac Resort currently offers fishing, swimming, boating, and in addition to RV parking, has tent camping & cabin locations established for accommodation.
Grow Condos owns, develops and manages industrial properties with the stated mission of enabling and enhancing the cultivation of cannabis growers. It also outfit these growers along with supplying them with a unique advisory and consulting services specialised in cannabis industry related real estate and grow facilities. The company’s new wholly owned subsidiary, Smoke on the Water will manage the RV park.
Because it’s not yet permissible to recreationally smoke in National and State Parks, the company believes that relaxed marijuana laws are indeed a powerful motivator for tourists, which creates a very lucrative niche opportunity for smaller, privately owned properties that can offer the freedom of experiencing Oregon’s landscape while also allowing its visitors to enjoy its relaxed laws on marijuana.
The Travel Oregon Strategic Plan for 2015-17 states: “More people than ever are choosing to come to Oregon, and they are traveling farther than ever to get here. They are coming to enjoy the things we love: natural beauty, wilderness, adventure, amazing fresh food, wine, craft beer, world-class sports, and a vibrant arts and culture community. The result of all these visitors is a long list of powerful statistics and measures that show the profound economic power of tourism in Oregon.”
Grow Condos quotes a survey from the Denver Post in Colorado which found that marijuana laws influenced vacation decisions almost 49 percent of the time. While the state’s tourism ad campaign does not mention marijuana, 22 percent of survey respondents said the drug was “extremely influential” in their decision to visit Colorado. In addition, 20 percent said it was “very much influential” and nearly 7 percent said it was “somewhat influential.”
“This is one of the most exciting ventures to date for our Company. The opportunity for this segment of the real-estate industry is potentially very advantageous and largely untapped. This year we expect significant growth through this subsidiary, as we build, launch, and brand one of Oregon’s next beautiful cannabis friendly destinations,” stated Wayne Zallen, Chief Executive Officer.
