Think your soda doesn't have enough pop? If you're a medical marijuana user, your bottle of sugar and caffeine is about to get a little extra zing.
One Santa Cruz County resident says he plans to develop and market a soda with THC, one of the prominent ingredients in marijuana.
"I don't do drugs," he told the paper. "Never have. I never drank, never smoked. I'm a clean-living guy. I've had two beers in my whole life, and I remember them both too. No marijuana, I've never smoked a cigarette. I take an aspirin when I get a headache. That's it."
Pot soda already exists but Butler says his company's will be different because the commercial artist will put his branding behind the pop.
Canna Cola will come in cola flavor, a lemon-lime flavor, grape and even a Dr Pepper inspired pop called Doc Weed.
Each bottle will have between 35 to 65 milligrams of THC and sell for between $10 and $15 per 12-ounce bottle.
The soda is scheduled to begin selling in Colorado in February but getting the bottles into California may be a bit trickier. Plans tentatively call for the soda to hit the Golden State in the spring.
A bill sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein could also cause problems. The "Brownie Law" would double penalties for anyone who sells a product that combines marijuana and "a candy product."
