Medical Marijuana Soda 'Altitude Organix' the Latest Way to Get High: Will it Come to L.A?
Cannabis -- that smooth refreshing drink.
You can smoke you weed, vaporize it and, of course, eat it in a brownie. There are even THC pills.
Now you can drink it, if you so desire.
Altitude Organic Corporation announced this week that it has paired up with Dixie Elixirs "to create the Altitude Organix medical marijuana infused beverage line." Ah, this bud's for you.
When we think of a smooth, refreshing drink, the image of dried green cannabis doesn't exactly come to mind.
But they might have something here.
Will it be available in L.A. pot shops? We're not sure. We have a call in to the folks at Altitude.
The drinks will be produced in Denver, but they want to manufacture them in Arizona too -- after that state's medical marijuana law leads to the approval of its first dispensaries this summer.
Dixie already sells its pot sodas in more than half the dispensaries in Colorado, it claims.
Tripp Keber, managing director of Dixie:
This strategic partnership with Altitude Organic Corporation is an exciting day for both of our companies and the MMJ industry itself ... We are confident that our branded and tested THC infused medicinal elixirs will be well received by MMJ patients as we roll out the co-branded offering.
The company already has these flavors: Sparkling Grapefruit, Sparkling Mandarin, Sparkling Red Currant, Sparkling Blueberry, Sparkling Peach, Sparkling Pomegranate, and Old-Fashioned Sarsaparilla.
You know what is probably the best thing about this: Not smelling like a homeless stoner.
