Should Ben & Jerry’s Come Up With Weed-Infused Ice Cream?

There is no question that Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream has always had some pretty creative flavors, like Karamel Sutra and Candy Bar Pie...yum! But, yesterday, when the company's founders revealed on HuffPo Live that they would be open to the idea of selling a cannabis-infused ice cream, we took notice. Yep, co-founder Jerry Greenfield said, “If it were my decision, we’d be doing it.” Unluckily for us, actual Ben & Jerry aren’t involved in the business decision-making process anymore; they’re just, in their words, the “pretty faces” for the brand. But, that doesn't mean their ideas shouldn't be heard. Here’s our question: Would pot ice cream just be an infinite loop of indulgence? You eat it, you get the munchies, you eat more, and so on, forever and ever? A never-ending dance with Mary Jane (Tom Petty joke, anyone)? Only time will tell if Jerry's cannabis-crunch idea actually happens — in the meantime, why don't you check out our story on women in the weed industry? Maybe one of them will beat him to it.
