A food truck starts selling weed-infused meals openly in Washington for the first time after a vote in favor of recreational marijuana legalization in 2012.
Food company MagicalButter is taking the “Samich” truck across US cities where marijuana is now legal, and its journey began in April in Denver. “Samich”, the company says, stands for "Savory Accessible Marijuana Infused Culinary Happiness."
The process of infusion is achieved using an automatic botanical extractor often used to make cannabutter and canna-oil. The device can take nutrients from plants and produce butters, oils, and tinctures.
On the menu, are barbecue and pulled pork filled sandwiches, in addition to a turkey and stuffing option served on cornbread. The latter is known as the "Danks-giving."
The truck's signature "Samich" sandwich consists of nut butter, jelly, and banana. The jelly is a “trinity jam” made with blueberries, raspberries, and pomegranates, MagicalButter enthused.
Also on the list is truffle popcorn with ganja – Indian marijuana.
MagicalButter pledges that each product will be packed with between 30 and 100 milligrams of THC, cannabis' main psychoactive element. This constitutes a healthy daily dose, according to Medical Jane, the marijuana enthusiasts' site.
