5 New Year's Eve Parties Designed for Marijuana Users

New Year’s Eve is usually associated with people drinking way too much champagne. But some people would prefer to ring in the New Year with some cannabis. And luckily, there are places catering to those people.

Here are five New Year’s Eve parties for marijuana users:

1. NYE Cannabis Celebration in Denver, Colorado

You may remember last year a CNN reporter spent New Year’s Eve on a cannabis tour bus. Well, this was the bus! The New Year’s Eve cannabis celebration combines the Colorado Cannabis Tours two most popular bus tours into one all night experience. Partygoers will spend time at dispensaries and lighting up on a party bus. What more could you want?

2. Ugly Sweater Charity Ball in Portland, Oregon

Ok, technically this one is on December 28th, so not on New Year’s Eve. But it’s a combination Christmas and New Years party for cannabis lovers in Portland. Whether you work in the industry or just love buying cannabis, this party is meant for all marijuana lovers. And it’s for charity, so you are actually helping the world by going.

3. New Year’s Eve Cannabis Ball in Denver, Colorado

Cannabis and black tie events usually don’t go together. But at the New Year’s Eve Cannabis Ball in Denver, they do. Get all the luxury of a fancy New Year’s Eve party with some help of Colorado’s best cannabis companies.

4. The Portlandia Experience in Portland, Oregon

No, the Portlandia Experience isn’t related to the sketch show. Instead, it’s a tour on a psychedelic bus that stops at Portland’s best dispensaries to try all their products. The company promises there will be plenty of Doritos on the bus.

5. Toast! in Las Vegas, Nevada

By now, you’ve probably heard about the Cannabition Cannabis Museum in Las Vegas. It’s basically a massive museum filled with just about all things marijuana-related. But for New Year’s Eve, they’re transforming the museum into the hottest New Year’s Eve attraction in Vegas.


Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
