Stoners who are also efficiency nuts will rejoice at the news that the founders of Ben & Jerry’s would love to put weed in their company’s ice-cream, thus allowing you simultaneously to get high and kill your munchies in one sugary haze. In a discussion with Huff Post Live that touched on the topic of legalizing marijuana, Ben Cohen said that combining weed and ice cream is practical. “Makes sense to me … combine your pleasures.”
While his partner, Jerry Greenfield, thinks legalizing marijuana “is a wonderful thing,” he doesn’t foresee a cannabis edible flavor. “If it were my decision, I’d be doing it,” he added, but “wiser heads at the company” would probably not allow it. Ben & Jerry’s — makers of ice cream with stoner-friendly names like Cherry Garcia, Hazed And Confused, Bonnaroo Buzz, Phish Food, and Half-Baked — is owned by the notorious buzzkilling Unilever.
