Clay Butler, a Northern California entrepreneur has dreamed up the idea of soft drinks that have THC, the main psychoactive substance found in marijuana.
 
These drinks come in flavours like Canna Cola, Doc Weed, Sour Diesel, Grape Ape and Orange Kush.

Cannabis is illegal when it is used for recreation, but it is permitted to be used for medicinal purposes.  Butler offers this reasoning to validate his project:  "I'm a firm believer that adults have an inalienable right to think, eat, smoke, drink, ingest, decorate, dress any way they choose to do so. It's your life; it's your body." Nevertheless, he claims that he has no intention of trying his own products, although he makes it accessible to others.

Scott Riddell, the founder of Diavolo Brands, which is marketing Canna Cola, is anxious that a bill in Congress would be a hurdle to Butler's project, since it proposes to double the penalties for anyone who produces a product that combines marijuana with "a candy product."

If legal approval is obtained, the THC-laced sodas will be on sale for 10 to15-dollars for a 12-ounce bottle and will be sold in medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado beginning next month.
