Abstract

Editorial Ian Seymour Yeoman Rise and shine its marijuana time! Says Wright (2019). Across the world attitudes are changing and Cannabis has become a tourism experience, whether it is the Muscle beach in California or the coffee shops of Amsterdam. The paper explores the future potential of a UK cannabis tourism market offering original ideas and exploring a potential future cannabis industry in the UK. The purpose of this paper is to explore a potential strategy in which the UK could integrate cannabis across the country, to encourage tourists to travel to less visited towns and cities. Wright’s takes a sensitive topic and uses the scenario approach to demonstrate what the future could be. This the purpose of future studies for policy makers, decision and the leaders of the tourism industry. As researchers we have a responsibility to make sense of complex issues and uncertainty. Scenario planning is a methodology which brings structure and a framework in to allow sense making (Dervin, 1998). Scenarios are illustrations of possible future pictures and historically of alternative futures. The key purpose of scenario planning is to change/alter mental models through dialogue, conversation and decision making as a participatory group process thus contributing
