Meanwhile, the legalisation of cannabis in Colorado has created a boom for other industries. Take ‘the munchies’ for example. Apparently, there are munchies machines being installed need pot shops, in malls and more or less, on every street corner in areas where marketers think there will be a high consumption of the drug.
And, it’s not just packets of Space Raiders, Chomps and other cheap and cheerful snacks that entrepreneurs are thinking that ‘typical’ cannabis users will be consuming
A Denver (Colorado) based event planner has started started Edible Events after testing her concept with focus groups in Denver’s tony Cherry Creek neighborhood.
The haute cuisine won’t contain any cannabis, like bakeries and the like are trying to offer (known as space cakes), but complement cannabis and provide an sort-of upper class munchie, for the discerning drug user: “We’re catering to the heightened senses of a cannabis user,” says Jane West the owner of Edible Events.
The company are planning on a their first BYOC (Bring Your Own Cannabis) event on 24th January to showcase their edible treats. They will feature small servings—”skewers, forkfuls”—like Chicken Parmesan Lollipops (pictured) prepared fresh and plated by chefs at stations around Denver’s Space Gallery. Attendees are invited to use the “smoking lounge” in a luxury bus parked nearby to smoke or vaporize their marijuana. Cannabis addiction is rarely recognised as a problem, but for many it proves to be just that.
