Man, what are these crazy kids going to put weed into next? With the legalization of weed imminent, I’m guessing the game is no longer in the crazy kids’ court, and is more in the court of “executive chefs” who decide what will create the biggest profit margins. These leaders of industry–which is weird to call them, because never in the history of capitalism have the leaders of industry rocked dreads–have managed to put weed into the world’s most popular morning pick-me-up: coffee.
There is a phrase about “picking the low-hanging fruit,” and while it would be really easy to make a wake ‘n’ bake joke, I’m going to take the high road and just say this coffee is going to be dope. Coffee is responsible for most of America’s early morning productivity and lack of aggravated assaults. Introducing this new type of coffee, dubbed “Legal” by its Washington-based creators, will surely contribute to reduced cases of the always dreaded Mondays.
The coffee will have about 20 milligrams of THC in it, which will produce a buzz similar to that of having “a nice IPA or glass of wine.”
From Huffington Post:
[E]ach bottle contains about 20 milligrams of THC, the psychoactive compound that gives marijuana users a high. That’s enough to make the experience similar to having “a nice IPA or glass of wine. We don’t want to pack so much THC into every one of our drinks that it’s unpleasant, especially for people that are just getting into marijuana.
According to the company’s website, the version that includes cream and sugar is described as “a cool avalanche of pure deliciousness.”
Drinking this coffee is like riding a cool avalanche of pure deliciousness down a tall mountain and landing in an ocean of good feelings. You’ll swim off into a day of work or play filled to the brim with pure joy.
As those guys from the Guinness ads once said: “brilliant.”
