Some winemakers are adding pot to their product

News

Many people (let's call them "libertarians") draw similarities between alcoholic beverages and marijuana. How about saving some time and combining both?

Winemakers in California are doing it.

For some, weed’s skunk-like stench might not be the sort of bouquet they’re looking for when they jam their nose in a wine glass. But for some California vintners, it’s a mark of distinction: “the only truly original style of wine created in the New World,” said one winemaker.

Not that you'd ever want to, but the recipe is simple: Dump a pound of marijuana into a cuvee of wine (preferably red) and let it sit for nine months. Pour a glass and gag enjoy.

And no, this isn't legal.
