Medical marijuana is getting the culinary treatment. In states where it's legal, small businesses offering cannabis-infused foods are popping up. Products include lasagna, soda, ice cream and cookies. So far 15 states and Washington D.C. have legalized medical marijuana.
Edible medical marijuana products are favored by patients who don’t want to smoke or need to medicate themselves more discreetly.
Since marijuana of any kind is still illegal federally, these food companies can only manufacture and sell their products within their home states. And state law says they have to sell them through state-sanctioned dispensaries to patients who have a state issued medical marijuana card.
From candy to cookbooks, take a look at entrants in the edible marijuana market.
