Bye Bye Four Loko, Hello Soda Pot

January 26, 2011

Just when we thought we were in the clear by getting Four Loko off our shelves, Canna Cola comes up with Marijuana infused soda. Each 12-oz bottle comes with 35-65 milligrams of  THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannibis. It even comes in yummy flavors like the Dr Pepper-like Doc Weed, the lemon-lime Sour Diesel, the grape-flavored Grape Ape and the orange-flavored Orange Kush.

There are currently 15 states where marijuana is legal. The increased legalization of marijuana is not helping children “say no.” Youth are using marijuana illegally, and in their defense saying “but it’s medicine, so it’s ok.” Now they are making marijuana fun and delicious? What happened to using it as a medicine? Yeah, those who have been prescribed it say they don’t like to smoke it, but last I checked they weren’t making other drugs easier to take, at least not to this extent.

While Canna Cola may claim there is nothing wrong with their product, they use the tag line “12 Mind Blowing Ounces” on each label. They also use bright colors and animated characters on top of the fact that it is a soda, which makes it sound like they are targeting children.

Canna Cola’s makers plan to sell it to medical-marijuana dispensaries in Colorado starting next month, and hope to launch it in California by the spring.

What do you think?
