What do you think of this:

– In an effort to beat the "reefer madness" stigma of smoking weed, a Colorado company is making pot-infused soda for medical marijuana patients, writes David Teeghman at Discovery. Dixie Elixirs organic sodas look just about like anything else on the shelf, but deliver an added kick from "a carefully cultivated blend of the finest Sativa-dominant buds," the company says. They're available to anyone with a prescription.

  • It's a good idea in theory to make this just for medical purposes, but I think that every day users like my ex BIL who would literally die without pot would try to take advantage. Would all insurance companies cover this? I condone smoking pot for medical purposes only and not for recreation like my ex BIL smokes it.

  • If marijuana was discovered today, without all the stigma attached, it would be a pharmaceutical miracle. The pharmaceutical companies would be touting the drug of the century...and not in a 'cheech and chong' kind of way.

    Marijuana isn't illegal because it gets people high. It's illegal because it would infringe on the profits of tobacco and pharma. There are many legal drugs on the market that make people just as high and have much worse side effects than a brownie binge. No, I've partaken, and not in a Bill Clinton kind of way, either.

    I'm for sick people getting relief however they need.

  • IDK sounds nasty to me...you'd think being for medical purposes they'd make it something other than soda..

    I am ok with pot being legal for those with certain medical problems..but it should be kept from all others..

  • What about good old fashioned pot brownies? Pot soda doesn't seem like it would taste all that great

  • Don't they make MJ pills? I know someone that died of cancer and he was on the mj pills in his last days. MJ was the only thing that took the edge off of his pain while allowing him to stay coherent to spend the last days of his life with his loved ones. Morphine would have taken that away from him (would have kept him out of pain, but it was his personal choice to have those last moments).

  • They make bacon chocolate. It's not as horrible as it sounds. Kind of interesting, but not something I would go out and buy. They could put bud in chocolate bars too. LOL.
