The Food in Colorado is Going To Pot

Denver -- Would you like those pot brownies in regular or gluten-free? Retailers across Colorado are baking, injecting, spraying and infusing marijuana into just about every conceivable food as they race to meet demand for what are known as edibles. While pot brownies are perhaps the best-known form, you can now buy marijuana-infused foods ranging from hard candies to cookies, olive oil, granola bars, chocolate truffles and spaghetti sauce.
Retailers even sell marijuana extracts known as tincture so people can dose their own cooking. Prices vary, depending on the strength and number of doses in each item."You name it, it's being made," says Julie Postlethwait of Colorado's Division of Marijuana Enforcement.Retail marijuana sales became legal in Colorado on Jan. 1, and new shop owners say they've been surprised at how strong the edibles market has been. They credit anti-smoking campaigns with turning first-time pot buyers into edibles advocates. Fans say eating a cookie or sucking on a mint is far more convenient and discreet than smoking, especially for parents worried about returning home from a party smelling like pot."The smell is a big one," says Coit Stevenson, 28, of Denver, who has tried both edibles and smoking. He prefers smoking but says edibles are an attractive alternative, especially for first-time users.SnippedComplete Article: USA Today (US) Author: Trevor Hughes, USA TodayPublished: February 3, 2014Copyright: 2014 USA Today, a division of Gannett Co.
