As workplace safety experts and doctors who treat injured workers constantly grapple with the confusion surrounding such issues as workplace drug testing and medical marijuana dosing, more and more products are parading into the weed market.
Case in point: The Times-Picayune in New Orleans reports that king cake-flavored medical marijuana chews are debuting just in time for Carnival season. The frenetic taste of king cake, a Mardi Gras mainstay usually described as a giant cinnamon brioche roll dusted with green, yellow and purple sugar, has already seeped into other marketplaces: coffee, ice cream and even vodka.
Medical marijuana company Good Day Farms will serve its new product before Fat Tuesday, or Feb. 21, serving packages of “healing potential in carnival-themed king cake,” according to the news article, which stipulates that a Louisiana medical marijuana card is required to take part .
Inspired by a corporate chef who moved to New Orleans from Arkansas and embraced the jazzy, anything-goes culture well, the chews are flavored with cinnamon and have a multi-colored coating of cinnamon and crunchy sugar.
