SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – If a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, imagine what a pancake breakfast might do for medical marijuana.
Marijuana is only legal for medical purposes in California, but that isn’t stopping purveyors of pot-infused cupcakes, nuts and other edible forms of the drug from putting on an outdoor food festival to showcase their wares.
The “Get Baked Sale” is happening today at a food truck hub in San Francisco comes as marijuana advocates are working to legalize recreational use of the drug through a statewide voter initiative next year.
Under California law, only people with proof of a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana would be authorized to eat the cannabis-cooked pancakes that will be served during the breakfast portion of the daylong event.
Organizers say food trucks selling more standard fare also will be on hand.
