Coca-Cola is talking about possibly making a Marijuana-infused drinks.

According to CNN, Coke said in a statement Monday that it is “closely watching” the growth of CBD, a non-psychoactive component in marijuana, as an ingredient in what it called functional wellness beverages.

Unsung Cruise

Both marijuana and CBD are still illegal in the U.S. under federal law, even though a number of states have legalized marijuana. But the prohibition against CBD is not strictly enforced.

The original Coca-Cola contain traces of cocaine and was used to treat morphine addiction and indigestion in 1886.

Dre’s #breakfastbite.. What are your thoughts about a marijuana infused Coca Cola? Would you try it? (Via IG & Twitter @drejohnson1 @92qjamsbmore)

Stuart Goodall Nope! Not until all the brothers that were locked up on petty drug charges are released. How you gonna lock somebody up for something that legal and allow billion dollars corps to make profits on it? Naw son.

Akil Bay Boy Leggett It’s still on work drug test here in Md, but other states are getting paid off of products just like this. Something has to change.

bigmarco711 @drejohnson1 If they can’t fire me at work I WANT IN

theecourtneyalexis I don’t trust it 🤨

prettiebrownthang Smart idea.

ms.alaynious.kay Interesting… Coke wants a piece of the pie too. There are edibles, so now they’ll be drinkables lol. Although, I’m not sure if they will be the first to do this.

lady.jaykeepcalm It would not get you high..just will contain all the other ingredients without the high

kynneed It’s going to be made with CBD. Wouldn’t have the hallucinogenic effects of THC. Its smart. Cannabis is big business now. Coca Cola is just try to get their cut and bring it more to the mainstream.

ronniesboy Cant be no worse than sugar and caffeine.

iambigskiptheceo THE ABSOLUTE WORST AND DUMBEST IDEA EVER. AS A NON WEED SMOKER ITS TERRIBLE TO SEE THAT PEOPLE WOULD SUPPORT THIS IDEA.

ms585ny Do people realize that Coke started out with cocaine in it. This isn’t anything new.
