Ben of Ben & Jerry's: Pot goes with Cherry Garcia

Ben of Ben & Jerry's picks a pot flavor

Ben Cohen just answered a burning question for all those suffering from the munchies.

Which Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor goes best with cannabis?

Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, has plenty of options. After all, his company has created flavors such as Karamel Sutra and Half Baked. Cohen, though, went with his old standby—the flavor named after Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia.
