Canna Cola: Medical Marijuana Goes Soft

Clay Butler has never smoked a joint or packed a pipe, nor has he ever smoked a cigarette. Butler claims he only drank two beers in his entire life—and he remembers them both.

It is quite ironic that this man is a partner in a company set to launch a new type of medical marijuanaCanna Cola. Clay’s novel idea is pot as a soft drink—a serious soft drink.

The combination of soda and pot is not completely original; there are soft drinks on the market that contain THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. However, according to Butler, his soft drinks will actually taste good.

The line includes the flagship soda Canna Cola, the Dr. Pepper knockoff Doc Weed, the lemon-lime Sour Diesel, the grape-flavored Grape Ape and the orange-flavored Orange Kush.

America’s overweight underachievers can now get high and get a sugar-induced coma from high fructose corn syrup all in one sitting. Is diabetes a medically feasible reason to obtain marijuana?

The cola line will contain somewhere between 35 to 65 milligrams of THC and will retail for $10 to $15 for a 12 ounce bottle. Somewhere there are Sublime fans languidly chanting “12 ounces to freedom.”

Butler plans to launch the line sometime in February in the marijuana-friendly state of Colorado.
