A sip of pot-infused organic soda could help the medicine go down
Wednesday 27 October 2010
A new line of marijuana-laced sodas Dixie Elixirs launched in the US for medicinal purposes, a world first.
The company's site explains that each bottle is made with "a carefully cultivated blend of the finest Sativa-dominant Colorado-grown buds," available in lemonade, sweet tea, pink lemonade, strawberry, orange, grape and root beer flavors.
They promise that the "carbonation delivers relief to a wide range of symptoms faster."
On October 19, Dixie Elixirs told Discovery.com that "part of the reason they developed their line of mary-jane drinks was to remove that 'reefer madness' stigma associated with marijuana smokers."
On November 7, Californians may vote recreational marijuana legal, placing Dixie Elixirs on store shelves. In the meantime patients are legally allowed drink, eat, and smoke their medicinal marijuana in 14 US states.
This isn't the first time drugs have been mixed with soda. The new book The Coke Machine: The Dirty Truth Behind The World's Favorite Soft Drink ($26/€19) by Michael Blanding, released on September 16, explains the original Coca-Cola recipe did have small amounts of cocaine present. Something the company does not talk about.
And, Pepsi, first created by a pharmacist, was designed to be a digestive aid that would function similar to the enzyme pepsin.
