There is a general consensus on the classic food pairings – peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and vanilla, but what about morning joe and mary jane?
Cannabis-infused coffee is set to hit stores in Washington this summer. The Cold brewed coffee dubbed “The Legal,” is billed as “riding a cool avalanche of pure deliciousness down a tall mountain and landing in an ocean of good feelings,” according to the company website.
The product developer, Adam Stites, told the Huffington Post, “It’s an alert, creative high.”
Recreational marijuana was legalized in Washington in 2012. Stites expects the retail operation to be up and running by July, pending the approval of his upcoming inspection by the state’s department of agriculture, according to Huffington Post.
