Pot Tea

Posted by on June 26 at 15:05 PM

Iced tea containing cannabis is about to go on sale in the UK. The tea—C-Ice Swiss Cannabis Ice Tea—is five percent of hemp flower syrup but only contains a tiny bit of THC. Anyone who tried to get high drinking this tea would drown first. But the anti-drug hysterics are, of course, hysterical.

But British anti-drug campaigners say that selling the tea is dangerous because it will give young people the impression that cannabis is commonplace.

Yeah, we wouldn’t want to give kids the impression that pot—the most widely used and easily obtained recreational drug on the planet—is, you know, commonplace or anything.

The real problem is that consuming pot tea is going to interfere with the alcoholic development of young Britons, who need to start constant training at an early age if they are going to be able to keep up with their peers in later years, consuming the expected 18 pints of beer per person per night in Blackpool and Brighton, Benidorm and Prague. It's the British way of life and it must be defended!

Peaches smell and taste like peaches. Pot smells like socks, so, we infer, this product tastes like sock-flavored tea. Gross.

Don't get me wrong, I still think it should be legally available, so it can fail, just like all unappealing products on the market.

The "eat nefarious snacks" fad will end. Remember when everyone had to wear hemp clothes because hemp was so cool? We all ended up looking like freaks wearing nooses and gunny sacks. Nevermore.

The existence of french cheese should tip you of to the tolerance of individuals for food redolent of foul socks.
In a world where people will pay $25/lb for something that smells like a sock worn by a basque shepard, a bit of a socky funk is probably not going to put too many people off.

Don't folks know there's a green drought in Seattle?!

(Wonder if Perenial Tea Room willcarry it...)

Yeah, but can you smoke it? har har

Burning pot smells like socks.

Fresh pot smell heavenly.
