Slick, Spirit Airlines! Pot smokers who are at least 21 years old can now legally purchase recreational marijuana in Colorado. Spirit Airlines wasted no time trying to cash in on that development.

Weed win?

Yes, they are.

Promoting pot?

Or harmless tactic? These Twitter users are getting a kick out of the marketing ploy.

Oh dear.

What will be next?

Heh.

Well, they would need to stock up on those little bags of peanuts for the resultant munchies.

    Let’s see if they’re all still yucking it up a year from now. Hardy har har.

  • RblDiver

    Ironic an airline is promoting the pot culture, when the airport’s a MJ-free zone.

  • Mike Sanfilippo

    It’s smart, it’s current, it’s funny, and likely will be effective. There are a whole lot of people who will be traveling to CO in the near future specifically to partake. It seems to me to be a sound marketing strategy.

      And then they will rent a car.

      That would have cost me my security clearance before I retired.

  • Rocket Surgeon

    If they’re going to promote flights based on what’s illegal here and legal there, I’d rather see the promo for Vegas. “It’s legal here, and WE won’t tell your wife.”

    Wait, there’s one little problem… If someone wants to take some home with them, how do they get it past Security/TSA? #Curious… Jawamax 8<{D}

    • KayGee

      Answer: you smoke all your extra weed in one big fatty before you get in the airport door. Colorado already clarified that weed is not allowed at any of their int’l airports, although they also followed that up with “but we don’t have extra dogs and checkpoints at every door, just don’t try to bring it through TSA security to go home with you, because duh!” Besides, I’m sure we can both agree that it’ll make the boring flight home less boring, maybe you can zone out, fall asleep, or freakout and think you’re flying the plane from your ipad?

    • supplyguy

      TSA will just steal it from your luggage and smoke on their break. You’re never going to get it out by commercial plane.

  • Walter Sobchak

    Gotta love the stylized pot leaf in the background. They could hand out Zig-Zags to the people disembarking in CO as a promo.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Who ever is in charge of their online advertising…is brilliant!

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Somehow, after what happened yesterday in Aspen– well, y’know, combining pot, airplanes, and Colorado in an ad– aww Jeez, guys, I dunno ’bout that one…

  • floridaobserver

    Way too funny! Isn’t that green sunburst design nothing but a stylized marijuana leaf?

  • floridaobserver

    And I have to fly to Colorado Springs again next month to see my son and his family. He and the other locals are worried about others driving while under the influence.

    • castlemonster

      You do know that marijauna existed before last week, right?

      • floridaobserver

        Yes, but nowi it’s REALLY out there for all to smell.
        As an example, years ago, my daughter went with her team to a soccer tournament in Haarlem, the Netherlands. The smoke was wafting through the hotel they were staying at. The organizers didn’t really think of that. Gave her a headache. Coach and chaperones were not happy.

    If it’s so harmless, every flight going into CO should require the flight crew to be smoking the entire time.

  • Brent Guthrie

    Boarding passes are made by Zig-Zag.

  • Mr Jimbo

    I went to Spirit’s website to confirm, and this is, in fact, true.

    I won’t be flying Spirit Airlines anytime soon.

  • Lonnie

    Haha! The $10 off is referencing the cost of a “dime bag!” Too funny!

  • Frustrated Teacher

    In other words…..if you can find your way through the smoke and boot your computer, you might be able to purchase tickets to somewhere that your ‘recreational’ habit is illegal….BUMMER!

  • TundraThunder

    The TSA will be busy stocking up on bags of MJ. People should check the eyes of those TSA agents, too.

  • supplyguy

    I think I’ll start a company that promotes sex tourism to Las Vegas.
