I wonder if these would get taxed in New York?
As the Village Voice noted last month, medical-marijuana permit-holders can now legally offer pot in all its wonderful forms. First we had lollipops. Now we have soda.
Dixie Elixirs, a Colorado-based “beverage” company, has just released a line of marijuana-laced sodas. According to their site, “Dixie Elixirs refreshing carbonated beverage provides an organic alternative for patients seeking a refreshing but equally potent alternative to smoke and tinctures, or carb- and calorie-loaded edibles.”
While I have no idea what half of that means, the company says its beverage is developed from the finest Colorado weed, providing “the potency that patients want in a soothing, sparkling beverage.”
Despite the massive marijuana leaf on the bottle, the drink is supposedly “easy to enjoy with discretion.” Dixie Elixirs comes in seven flavors: lemonade, sweet tea, pink lemonade, strawberry, orange, grape, and root beer.
Remember those soda fountains from your childhood? Don’t be surprised if they start making a comeback. The service just might be a little slower than you recall.
