In some bizarre news, it has emerged that medical marijuana users can now take their medicine - in the form of sparkling sodas!

'Canna Cola' combines soda and THC, a psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana, to create a drink that co-brand-developer Clay Butler calls 'medibles' (edible medicine).

"A lot of people simply don't want to smoke. It's very easy to take your medication in the form of a cookie, soda or brownie and you can do that without drawing attention to yourself," he told ABC News.

Why soda pot?

"Some people prefer medibles because it's better on the body than smoking or prescription drugs," said Butler.

"The use of marijuana-infused cola allows them to stay away from the prescription pain killers," he added.

The marijuana soda comes in '12 Mind Blowing Ounces' and is expected to cost 10 -12 dollars but will vary based on the price of supply at dispensaries.

Butler, who claims he has never tried drugs or drank soda, has designed five flavours such as Canna Cola, the Dr. Pepper- styled Doc Weed, Orange Kush, Grape Ape and Sour Diesel.

Medical marijuana users in Colorado will get the first chance to try the drink. The company expects to launch the product next month before expanding to the huge California market.

While the majority of Americans would support using medical marijuana to treat chronic conditions, the drug is only legal in 15 states including Columbia.

The product with nationwide ambition may have an uphill battle in store if Sen. Dianne Feinstein's 'Brownie Law' is enacted.

"Canna Cola and all medible manufacturers are concerned by this bill," said Butler.

He said 'Canna Cola' could not be compared to the controversial drink 'Four Loko', the beverage that mixed caffeine and alcohol.

"The products that are being pulled off the shelves have nothing to do with medicine. Canna Cola is a medicine," he said.

"You don't take [Canna Cola] unless you have specific medicinal reasons," he added.

Marijuana is the safest drug with actual benefits for the user as opposed to alcohol which is dangerous, causes addiction, birth defects, and affects literally every organ in the body. Groups are organizing all over the country to speak their minds on reforming pot laws. I drew up a very cool poster for the cause which you can check out on my artist’s blog at Drop in and let me know what you think!
