The first 20 to 30 licensed recreational marijuana retail outlets will open July 1 in Washington. With residents and visitors (21 and over) allowed to purchase the product, the budding marijuana tourism scene is preparing to welcome consumers interested in a special kind of green tour.

These tours will include visits of production facilities and medical dispensaries.

Here are a few pot-themed tours set to be on offer:

- Canna-bus offers a marijuana-friendly tour of Seattle, including a visit to a medical grow, a look at an operating dispensary and even some local cuisine ($100, approx. 3.5 hours).
