Well, in the wake of the round of legalizations, you can now get pot soda. Excerpt:
A cannabis-infused fizzy drink is now on sale in the state of Washington as part of the ever-expanding US market for legal pot products.
Less than two months after recreational cannabis became legal in the west coast state, Washingtonians can now get their highs out of a soda bottle.
The drinks, called Legal, come in cherry, lemon and pomegranate flavours but are all infused with 10mg of liquid cannabis. The drinks cost around $10 (£6).
They are being marketed as a gentler alternative to smoking that could be attractive to those still wary about cannabis.
As marijuana becomes legal more places (as yr. obdt. suspects will happen) we’ll start seeing more of this kind of thing. In our own Colorado we are already seeing cannabis in a plethora of forms; in candies, in oils, in the inevitable baked goods (brownies and more) and in the traditional smokeable form.
The free market is a wonderful thing.
The linked article concludes:
For now the fizzy drinks will only be sold in Washington’s certified cannabis dispensaries but could one day be available on supermarket shelves.
Recreational cannabis became legal in Washington state in July, making it the second state to legalise cannabis after Colorado began sales in January.
Voters in Alaska and Oregon, Washington’s neighbouring state, will have their say on similar measures during referenda in November.
There is every reason to expect the measure will pass in Oregon. It may well pass in notoriously hands-off Alaska, too. This is a social trend that has legs. They may be a bit unsteady, but they are there.
