Capitalizing on Medical Marijuana: Pot Soft-Drinks

Photo Courtesy - KGO-TV San Francisco(SAN FRANCISCO) -- California and Colorado have more liberal medical marijuana laws than most states, and one entrepreneur wants to capitalize on those tolerant policies by marketing a line of marijuana soft drinks.

Clay Butler tells The Mercury News he's never smoked marijuana, but he thinks there's a market in marijuana dispensaries for a line of soft drinks that contain THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

The resident of Soquel, Calif., has partnered with Diavolo Brands to produce five soft drink flavors: Canna Coke, a Dr. Pepper-like beverage called Doc Weed, lemon-lime Sour Diesel, Grape Ape, and the orange-flavored Orange Kush.

Butler hopes to launch the products in Colorado next month, and in California by springtime. 

The soft drinks will sell for between $10 and $15 per 12-ounce bottle.
