Marijuana wine the next big thing

Wine

Kathleen Wilcox on the trend for weed-infused wine, here quoting Dr. Carl Ruck…

Though he refrained from commenting on the “advisability” of renewing the practice of brewing weed-wine, he did say that “cannabis would be one of the less dangerous additives” to make a comeback, of which there are a few other less promising entries in the wine fortification market. “Evidence for the additives comes from folkloric traditions and the practice is apparently often employed in the making of home brews,” Professor Ruck explains. “One with salamander venom is marketed in the Balkans. Modern Greek retsina is fortified with toxic terpenes.”

Come for the history lesson, stay for sneering about stoners. It's going to be a lot of fun watching Wine People come to terms with the new normal!
