Weed and food have a long and wonderful history together. And not just because "the munchies" have inspired countless food and flavor combinations (think about Ben and Jerry's ice cream, those dudes must've been high). Bhang lassi, a cannabis-infused yogurt drink, originated in India hundreds and hundreds of years ago and is still popular, especially during the festival of Holi. When used in moderation, marijuana-infused food can be a nice treat, and itmay even have a few beneficial properties as well. For many people with serious and chronic pain conditions, medical marijuana edibles, sometimes called "medibles," have been a blessing. There are people with insomnia who use pot instead of sleeping pills and folks who use cannabis foods to help with arthritis, MS, and other conditions. And some people just like to get high. A cannabis chocolate bar and a movie or concert go together very well.
