Dude Designing Medical Marijuana-Infused Soda Pop!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A California man said he is designing medical marijuana-infused soda pop, a product he has no intention of trying.

Clay Butler of Soquel said the line of sodas containing THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, includes Canna Cola, Dr. Pepper-like Doc Weed, lemon-lime Sour Diesel, grape-flavored Grape Ape and orange-flavored Orange Kush, the Santa Cruz (Calif.) Sentinel reported Monday.

However, Butler said he will not be trying the products he`s designing.

He said the sodas will sell for $10 to $15 per 12-ounce bottle when they go on sale in Colorado in February. He said the products will later be introduced in California." UPI

I predict that Butler`s marijuana soda will fizzle, especially at $15 a pop per 12-ounce bottle.

Pot heads enjoy the ritual of rolling a joint, and taking a hit off a bong is as close to nirvana this side of heaven.

Popping a bottle of weed soda and taking a gulp is just too easy. A pot lover takes his time rolling the perfect joint, but the natural high is worth the wait.

Saying "do you want to drink some weed" doesn`t have the cachet of exclaiming, "Dude, let`s hit the bong."

Butler doesn`t plan on drinking his own product, and true potheads won`t touch his product either.
