US first marijuana-infused meals sold from food truck in Washington



A food truck is set to sell weed-infused meals openly in Washington for the first time – that’s after a vote in favor of legalization in 2012.

Food company MagicalButter is taking the “Samich” truck across US cities where marijuana is now legal, and its journey began in April in Denver. “Samich”, the company says, stands for "Savory Accessible Marijuana Infused Culinary Happiness."

The process of infusion is achieved using an automatic botanical extractor often used to make cannabutter and canna-oil. The device can take nutrients from plants and produce butters, oils, and tinctures.

On the menu, are barbecue and pulled pork filled sandwiches, in addition to a turkey and stuffing option served on cornbread. The latter is known as the "Danks-giving."


Well, it finally happened: The first marijuana food truck

The truck's signature "Samich" sandwich consists of nut butter, jelly, and banana. The jelly is a “trinity jam” made with blueberries, raspberries, and pomegranates, MagicalButter enthused.

Also on the list is truffle popcorn with ganja – Indian marijuana.

MagicalButter pledges that each product will be packed with between 30 and 100 milligrams of THC, cannabis' main psychoactive element. This constitutes a healthy daily dose, according to the marijuana medical site, Medical Jane.

The “magical truck” is in fact an important step in the legalization of marijuana, as it has become one of the few centralized places to buy recreational pot.

The truck’s first appearance was to have taken place in the city of Everett on June 28.

The state of Washington voted to legalize cannabis back in 2012, but has since put off the process of issuing licenses to growers and processors, The Verge media outlet reported. Licenses for the first 20 RM retail stores in Washington State are to be issued on July 7.

Reportedly, the truck’s services can now only be used by people who hold medical marijuana use cards, Livetrading News portal stated.

Washington and Colorado states are currently the only 2 states with laws supporting legal recreational marijuana use. Medical marijuana use is much more widespread, with New York set to join 22 states, along with the District of Columbia, to legalize usage of cannabis in some form.

Washington was also planning to start selling pot-infused coffee in July.

Colorado, in its turn, increased control over cannabis-containing munchies, following a few overdose cases that ended dramatically.
