Think about the last time you ran out to the shop for a six-pack or bottle of your favorite wine or spirits.
On the way to the case or shelf, you probably walked right past any one of a dozen or so "marijuana beers," often with bright green, leafy logos.
Microbrewers who make these "marijuana beers" infuse their creations with hemp. Does it add flavor? Eminently debatable. But the truth is, the "secret ingredient" doesn't add any extra kick to the beer; the hemp is THC-free.
At least, it used to be. Because earlier this month, we got a look at the world's first no-quotation-marks-needed marijuana beer.
Where are they making this new adult beverage?
Why, Canada, of course. The country is home to what could be a $6.5 billion legal weed industry, and some very, very interesting things are happening there.
