CNN-- A Kansas coffee shop owner is already organizing trips to Colorado to take advantage of the new pot laws there, charging 420 bucks a head for those seeking medicinal relief to load up in a mini bus with dark windows.

But state drug task forces are going to be watching for people with plans just like these.

"We're seeing an enormous upswing in marijuana coming in from Colorado- being imported," said Lt. Jim Norton of the Salina Drug Task Force. 

"I don't anticipate a problem. Our vehicle is outlines with cameras and every conversation is recorded," said Bart Allen, the organizer of the bus trips. "So, like I said, they have said they will target us for taking old people out to seek help for medical conditions- I can live with that." 

By the way, it is illegal to take any marijuana out of Colorado, and out of state visitors are limited to a quarter of an ounce.
