Newswire: Ben & Jerry consider just putting the weed directly in the ice cream
Using the sort of reasoning that’s led to innovations like the TV/VCR, smartphones, and shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle, the founders of Ben & Jerry’s say they are open to just putting the weed in the ice cream, thereby streamlining the process. “Makes sense to me,” Ben Cohen recently told HuffPost Live of the idea, one of many pot-related things that have also made sense, like putting fudge-covered peanut butter pretzels into ice cream with more fudge and peanut butter.
“Combine your pleasures,” added Cohen, the decadent Nero of dessert.
Ever the sensibly vanilla buzzkill to Ben’s thought-gobs, Jerry Greenfield cautioned that—while he agrees that “legalizing marijuana is a wonderful thing, rather than putting people in jail for not hurting anyone”—its decriminalization doesn’t mean you can expect edibles-infused Ben & Jerry’s Pot Of Gold or Cannabis Core anytime soon.
